Masha Allah , great to see our brother Askar Sakhirov teaching the Quran to the blind in Kazakhstan. Previously there had been no ustaz who could read Braille but now after learning in Malaysia , Askar has started classes on Kazakhstan.
A lecturer from a university in Bangladesh told us about the Kashipur madrassa for the blind in Khulna
A lecturer from a university in Bangladesh told us about the Kashipur madrassa for the blind in Khulna. This is the only madrasa for blind people in this zone which runs on the support of local people. It is a registered non government madrasa opening a door to memorize Holy Quran for poor blind people and also reading through braille technique.
A kind brother donated for a brailler to enable the students to learn braille so we sent this to them today along with 2 braille Qurans.

Every summer for the last 6 years we have worked with Dar alQuran in Gaza to run the Light Camp for memorisation of the Quran, and insha Allah this year will be the 7th year. Here are photos from the last 6 years camps.
Life is very hard now in Gaza and the blind students are looking forward to attending this year's summer camp.

Muhammad Furqan and his wife Nusrat who are both visually impaired had arrived from Pakistan last year and wanted a Braille Quran to read especially during Ramadan. His friend Waqar who we support at his Braille Resource Foundation told him about us. Furqan is technically adept and is willing to offer his services to any organisation that wishes to produce books in Braille or audio.
As a follow up we sent another braille Quran and 12 braille books of Juz 30 to the Kishipur madrassa in Khulna, Bangladesh with the help of lecturer Kamal Uddin who told us about them . May Allah ease their plight.
