Blind Week

The Blind Foundation is here for all Kiwis affected by blindness or sight loss, providing practical and emotional support to help them face the future with confidence. But we can’t do it without your help!

Blind Week is the time of year when we celebrate these New Zealanders who are living their lives without limits. It’s an opportunity for people to share their stories, and inspire others to do the same.

With your support this Blind Week we can reach more people in your community who are blind or have low vision, facing the future with confidence together.
