Midland/GBU launches 'help buy canes for the blind' campaign

The Ghana Blind Union (GBU) in partnership Midland Savings and Loans Limited have launched a campaign to raise funds for visually impaired in society.

The campaign dubbed: ‘White Cane for All’ is to help purchase white canes to aid in the movement of blind persons in the country.

Speaking at the launch, Managing Director of Midland, Michael Adjovu expressed concern about the worsening plight of the visually impaired in society.

According to him, blind people who have been relegated to the background have a lot to contribute to national development if empowered.

Mr. Adjovu indicated that Midland decided to support the campaign as part of the corporate social responsibility because “the blind have been rejected for a long time.

“The white cane is a very affordable tool that gives them to confidence to do anything without relying on other people” he added.

Mr. Adjovu said their goal is to buy a white cane for all blind people in Ghana gain their independence.

“This is a worthy cause and we believe we can be able to do this with the support of all”.

For his part, Executive Director of the Ghana Blind Union (GBU), Dr. Peter Obeng Asamoah said the white cane is the “eye of the blind”.

“We have found a way to conquer our disability by the use of the white cane but we need support” he bemoaned.

The Blind Union President called on all well-meaning Ghanaians to support the campaign to put a smile on their faces.

Dr. Obeng Asamoah thanked Midland for the kind gesture and urged other corporate bodies to emulate their example.

Also present at the launch were former Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee in Parliament, Albert Kan-Dapaah, International preacher, Rev. Lawrence Tetteh, President of MUSIGA, Bice Osei Kuffuor, management of staff of Midland Savings and Loans and members of the Ghana Blind Union.
