Funding for Blind Man Shoes by CHINMAYI SHINDE
Blinds are generally given stick to roam. However this makes them dependent on stick and a feeling that they are blind. What we want to give them is an independent life, where both of their hands will be free. They will be more confident. As per the census data there are 3.5 million blinds in the country with 30000 being added every year.
