I am always thankful when our Braille Quran reaches a blind person far away because it takes months on a ship to get there, and could so easily be lost. Today I got an email from Noushad who first wrote to AlFitrah Foundation Braille Quran Initiative from Chittagong, Bangladesh, 6 months ago about his relative Mohammad Gofran who was born in 1988,without any physical challenge, “his eyes were OK. When Gorfan was 10 he was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and during surgery in 1998, unfortunately he lost his sight . That time Gofran was student of Class Six.
After 3 years of blindness he started education at year 2001 from nursery at an Autism school of Chittagong, Bangladesh; at 2006 he completed primary education from the school. Then he admitted at high school near to his home, he studied at the school for 4 years, due to some challenge he cannot seat for Secondary School examination from the school. Then he was admitted to open university and passed Secondary School examination at year 2012.
At present Gofran spend his time at a small Khankha (where people pray) located at Dohazari, Chittagong,Bangladesh. Gofran’s present family consist of his mother and 3 sisters; His Father who supported him to come so far has died at the year 2017. “@ Chittagong City - চট্টগ্রাম শহর
