Christmas is coming! It is a wonderful time and all the children in the world wait for wonders! It is the time of wonders!

Please, take some time to read about what we have done to make the wonders for the blind children in Ukraine.

2. 100 Braille books were published in the new way. The books "Vegetable Puzzeles" were spread among 100 blind children in Kharkiv, Kiev, Odessa, Dnepropetrovsk.

3. Christmas time is the time of giving! We designed a unique Saint Nicko;as greetings card, which is a card for all. it is colorful and Braille at the same time. Everyone can see this card and it can be given to anyone. It is the innovation for Ukraine and it is the first time when the blind children can enjoy the winter time fully.
