What is it like to walk through a busy city in total darkness? How do you eat a meal when you can’t see what’s on your plate? Most people don’t think about the difficulties blind and visually impaired people face every day but the Bible Society of Costa Rica is working to change this.
“There are 260,000 blind and visually impaired people here but most Costa Ricans are oblivious to the lives they lead or the obstacles they face,” notes Bible Society General Secretary Mayra Ugalde. “The Bible tells us to care for the vulnerable and that’s why we are working to serve blind people and their families and make the public aware of their situation.”
