Blind Sheikh Fathi Dughmush leading terawih at Masjid Al-Mujamma Al-Islami in Gaza . Fathi was a student at our Light Camp which we have organised for the last 7 summers since 2012 . This provided an opportunity for the blind to memorize the Holy Quran. We have also sent them 100 Braille Qurans so every student has his own .
SK Klang is an integrated school for sighted and visually impaired students . We visited today with some Braille books including a Braille Quran, collection of surahs as well as other books. The students are good in Braille and the ustaz is starting to teach them muqaddam.
Hanafi lost his vision and his mother within months of each other. He had to move to a new school for the visually impaired and learn Braille in order to sit for his exams .
At Setapak High school for the blind, he met Danial another student who helped him with Braille and studied with him til 3 am . Alhamdulillah in the recent SPM exams they emerged top students with 7A's each.
This week we're glad to welcome Abdirahman Farah from Somalia to our office. Brother Abdi is working at the Somalia president's office in Disability Affairs. We gave him a Braille Quran as well as a book of Hadith . We also took him on a visit to the Malaysian Association for the Blind and the national council for the Blind. He had a tour of the library, the Braille printing unit with the thermoform machine , the low vision center and the vocational training center.
Insha Allah the new National Agency for persons with disabilities in Somalia will benefit from his experience here.
