Enriching The Lives of The Visually Impaired People In Liberia
Hope for Community Development will continue to invest in the lives of people that need help the most, especially the most vulnerable population. According to SIDA, in Liberia, 61% of the disabled population struggle with mobility, 24% are visually impaired, 7% are deaf and 8% have an intellectual or psychosocial disability.
The Liberian Visually Impaired Living and Learning Facility strives to enhance the lives of visually impaired individuals, enabling them to overcome barriers, pursue their aspirations, and lead fulfilling and independent lives.
The Liberian Visually Impaired Living and Learning Facility serves as a beacon of hope, empowerment, and inclusion for the visually impaired community. It represents a step forward in creating an inclusive society where individuals with visually impairments can thrive and contribute to nation building efforts.
