AlFitrah foundation gifted a refreshable Braille display and a brailler to two visually impaired students who have just joined sixth form at St Johns institution . Hanafi and Daniel were the top students last year in the SPM exams at Setapak High School for the Blind.
Hanafi's story is very moving, he lost his mother two months after losing his vision to glaucoma at the age of 16. As a result of losing all sight , he had to move to a new school and spend two years learning Braille before being able to sit for the SPM exams . Daniel became his best friend who helped him learn Braille and they both achieved 7A's in the SPM exams last year.
Daniel had requested for the Braille Me machine which is a portable Braille note taker and allows him to print out lessons from class in Braille and share them with the other Blind students in class . May Allah bless them with a successful future .
