Challenge

Blind people in north of Syria face enormous challenges in their communities, such as lack of awareness, stereotypes, and negative attitudes, in addition to the war that has doubled their suffering and numbers and has seriously increased the isolation of disabled and blind people, who face marginalization, the risk of abandonment and the urgent need for permanent accompaniers, along with the weak support dedicated to their needs and the scarcity of associations and projects supporting them.

Solution

Sighted Hands Center is one of the few centers supporting the blind in northwest Syria. The center trains them to make and produce many distinctive handicrafts and decorative objects, and assist them to market and sell the products in the local markets. The center targets both the totally and partially blind people aged 15-40 years.

Long-Term Impact

Through this campaign, SEMA aims to provide material and logistical support for this center for one year to continue supporting more than 15 blind person and scale up its activities that train and care for them and help them secure an appropriate income. Your donation means that you light the way for the blind to work, produce, and invest the rest of their delicate senses to create products with a unique human sense made with insight from their hearts and souls.
