“Make a WISH” for the Union of the blind Serbia

13/10/2018

A few months ago the “Union of the blind” Serbia has sent a “WISH” to the Embassy: a Braille printing system.

Easy to understand, the life of the blind is particularly complicated, especially bearing in mind the access to reading. Nevertheless, there are many Serbian students who, even if partially sighted, are able to graduate. Perhaps also thanks to the well-stocked library of the Union which is the richest in the Balkans with about 80,000 texts (50.000 in Braille Alphabet).

The Braille printing system is necessary but complex to purchase regarding the time of delivery of the Scadianvian manufacturer.

We have informed our friends from the Taiwan Representative office in Budapest about the necessity, as they were always willing to support generously our “Make a WISH to the Sovereign Order of Malta” Project.

And so, in the past few days, the Amb. Andrew Chang came to Belgrade to realize with us the “WISH” of the Union.

The ceremony was attended by the President of the “Union of the blind” Milan Stośić, the Secretary Ms. Jelena Stojanović, Ambassador Andrew Chang together with the Third Secretary Joe Y. Kuo, Ambassador Alberto di Luca together with the Director of the “Make a WISH” Project prof. Nenad Prokić.
