Support for the Blind
San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora. - Thanks to the work conducted by the School for the Blind led by the nonprofit organization "Caring Hearts", the project to build small businesses for the blind of ENULUVI as a means of obtaining resources for help withfamily expenses was accepted.
It is, without a doubt, a form of self-employment for the blind and thanks to the generouscontribution made by "Caring Hearts", through its representative Ken Blose, the first small business was opened on Saturday for Patricia Guadalupe Ledesma. .“Caring Hearts " built her a Refreshment stand making it possible for her to have self-employment and resources.
This information was released by the president of the association that supports blind and visually impaired for the purpose of obtaining a better quality of life, Reyes Linvania Lucan.
The contribution came with the construction of the stand with new lightweight materials,very well equipped and with a tarp outside that says “Support People with Disabilities”, & the school logo of ENULUVI (Turn a Light on in Your Life).
As Lupita Ledesma was the first beneficiary, the project entails that each disabled personbe benefited with something similar.
In talks with some of them, they said they will (be able to provide) miscellaneous and otherrefreshment stands similar to the first beneficiary.
Certainly a charitable work by “Caring Hearts” in this border town that now benefits the blind, who are very happy as they wait their turn to receive this support, which according to their words is a blessing and will greatly serve them in their ability to be self-sufficient.
