Worker, Tape Aids for the Blind

Discussion in 'People' started by bendheim, Mar 8, 2005.

  1. A partially-sighted worker (one who has less than 10 percent of his/her vision) copies tapes at Tape Aids for the Blind, something he has done for the past 25 years. Tape Aids is a voluntary programme; volunteers read novels onto Master tapes; these are then duplicated and distributed to Blind people all across South Africa, to bring them some pleasure through the darkness.

    I took this picture about eight months ago, and the other day the article finally appeared in print, so I thought I'd share the image.
     
  2. When coupled with the story this is a moving image of a fine man. I'm sure his efforts are appreciated. Thanks for sharing this.

    Peter,

    Great image. Great story.

    That is done here in USA as well.. The blind are also given the tape recorder free along with the loaner books.
