This is a real photo that was captured in Damascus, Syria in the year 1889. The one being carried is a Christian dwarf named Sameer. The one carrying him is a blind Muslim named Mohammed. Sameer would depend on Mohammed for transportation in the busy streets of Damascus. Mohammed also depended on Sameer to help navigate him passed obstacles. Only one of them was able to walk and only one of them was able to see. They were both orphans and lived together in the same room. They were forever together. Then Sameer died, Mohammed stayed in his room crying for a week. He lost his other half and as a result he died after that week from sadness. This once used to be Syria.
We are planning to bring 4 teachers from Boarding Collage Al-Basiir to Malaysia in January 2016 inshaa Allah to train them in the use, repair and maintenance of braille embossers so that they can print their own school books in braille. In fact the braille embossers had been donated by the Malaysian government some time back, but they have been unable to use it due to lack of training.
They have also requested to visit schools for the blind in Malaysia to learn our teaching methods. They would like to bring back braillers, white canes and braille Math and Science books when they return to Somalia.
