We welcomed two visitors yesterday from Sydney, Australia. Ustaz Naseer and his wife Raowa were interested to learn about our work and to find out how to learn Quraanic braille.
Haji Islah Busakorn who visited our office last month with his wife has started the first Madrassa for the blind in Thailand. He has requested for the following items:
Braille Quran and various islamic books in Braille

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.
