India holds the largest blind population, who live in desperate physical and spiritual needs. Mission To The Blind is an expression of God’s love and concern for them. You will have a glimpse of the problems, needs and potentials of blind people in India. Their problems are insurmountable; their needs are many and their potentials remain untapped.
A NEGLECTED COMMUNITY
Spread across the length and breadth of India, the blind & visually impaired people constitute a population of over 30 Million. Some are highly educated and intelligent; they aspire to achieve something in life. Yet they are rejected by the families, sidelined by the society at large.
A small percentage of young people receives education and vocational training through government and non-government bodies. They are open to the gospel message
A very limited scope of employment exists for them as teachers, professors, telephone operators and stenographers.
A major portion of them livs below poverty line; their meager income is through sales in public places.
THOSE AT THE MERCY OF OTHERS
Many of them live on charity. The aged are neglected and are in desperate physical and spiritual, needs.
