As part of the SANCB’s active and ongoing advocacy and empowerment programmes, a series of articles would be included on our website as a valuable repository of useful and informative information on blindness. We hope you will read these articles, which, aside from being written by blind persons, would serve to enrich your understanding of blindness and blind persons.
The first in our ongoing series of articles is by Dr Siva Moodley, and is titled Looking Back to the Future. I encourage you to read this article, as it includes valuable information on the shift in the attitudes to and the treatment of blind persons over many centuries. N.B.: for more detailed information on the history of blindness by the author of this article, you can go to firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the book titled If Those Walls Could See.
