Since the declaration of war on Ukraine, the World Blind Union (WBU) has prepared an initiative to provide support for Ukrainians. In particular, those who are blind or partially sighted experiencing unimaginable challenges; challenges that are intensified by barriers to transportation, communication, and access to information.
On March 31st, we were approached by Igor Kushni, a Ukrainian BlindSquare user, seeking help on behalf of persons who are blind and partially sighted in Ukraine. We immediately put a plan into action to support them. Below is Igor’s plea for help for Ukrainian refugees.
