The rotary club of Manama presented 100 SmartCanes to the members of the Friendship society for the Blind in a ceremony at the society’s premises in Riffa. A group of society members received the canes at the presentation which coincided with World Sight Day.
“Life is not the same anymore since I started using the SmartCane. It is like a less dark then how it was before” said Ms.Khudair . Khudair , who is among those who received the first set of 25 canes would be training the new set of users on the SmartCane which she says changed her life.
The club community director said the members were enthusiastic about the project. The club distributed 25 SmartCanes in April 2017 and the overwhelming response from the users inspired members to want to donate more.
On behalf of entire SmartCane, would like to express our sincere gratitude towards Rotary Team for taking this wonderful initiative of providing SmartCane devices to the members of the society.
