MY STATEMENT " Don't treat blind people as disabled. Just give them opportunity they would make you realize they are good in hearing, singing and everything you are not good at. Phew! "
" Founded in 1988, the Pakistan Foundation Fighting Blindness (PFFB), formerly known as the Pakistan Retinitis Pigmentosa Society (PREPS) is a registered national, non-governmental organisation (NGO) working in the field of medical research and humanitarian services for the visually impaired in our country. " [SOURCE] - I didn't gave an introduction. I think quoting their effort is good and it should be that way. Don't ask me why. Please, don't.

So, these projects are going very well. For those who are able to donate. I say don't donate, be a volunteer write at firstname.lastname@example.org - No, matter from whence you came you can make a contribution.
I don't care from what place you blog. Make an effort and contribute your reading ability to the organization. Sorry, for being " I don't care ". The fact is I don't receive any comments and all that So, I usually write what I want to.
I feel that it's Ok! to say angrily " fighting blind " - Curing blindness ( It's good to associate positive words ). So, I don't expect the organization to change name it's just that PAKISTAN CHRONICLES has it's own opinion. Positiveness is the way forward whether in blindness or something else.
