Organization: Hong Kong Blind Union

Two participants will form a team. Each one can take turn to put on an eye-mask to experience blindness. This enables you to better experience and understand more about the ability of and difficulties faced by visually impaired persons. Before the walk starts, participants will be taught the basic techniques of guiding visually impaired persons. Safety ambassadors will be arranged to ensure the safety of the participants along the route.

Save the day for the “Cane-athon” International White Cane Day 2012 to raise funds for Hong Kong Blind Union to meet the needs of 120,000 visually impaired people in employment, support network and IT development.
