MANYARA: The community of people with visual disabilities have requested Special Health Insurance to help them with treatment.

The chairman of the Association of the Deaf (TLB) in Manyara, Paulo Safari Akonaay said many blind people are living as dependents from the issue of access to food, food and shelter.

"And you will find the people we rely on also have their own problems, they cannot take care of us for everything," Akonaay said, at the party's meeting in Mbulu district.

According to the TLB Chairman, people with poor vision and eye problems are the most difficult to find a job or do business.

"I think we would also have been subsidized in our union, we could have initiated activities to do to reduce or withdraw completely from dependency issues," Akonaay added.

The Association of the Blind has also appealed to the community and government to help its members with visiting sticks, for road safety, for the exclusion of crossing points and for education and even training.

Mbulu City Council's Social Welfare Officer Tomic Simbeye, who is also the patron of the association, said they are now looking for a range of stakeholders to help the people because the government already has many responsibilities.
