Guide dogs, commonly used by visually impaired people around the world, making their lives easier, are now set to help out the disabled in Turkey.
The Guide Dogs Association is a Turkish organization founded back in Oct. 2014 that aims to help visually impaired people find a faithful friend. It provides specially-trained guide dogs to visually impaired people in Turkey free of charge.
The association became an official member of the European Guide Dogs Federation within just a month of its establishment.
Furthermore, an event to raise public awareness about the benefits of guide dogs will be organized on Nov. 26. The "Fall Ball" will take place at Istanbul's Marriot Hotel in the Şişli district with the participation of prominent figures from the business world, politics and diplomatic circles.
The United Kingdom's Ambassador to Turkey Richard Moore and his wife Maggie Moore will also attend the ball in support of the initiative.
The president of the association, attorney Nurdeniz Tunçer stated, "We aim is to help the visually impaired with guide dogs. These dogs, which have special training, can help them increase their mobility and complete many of their day to day tasks. As we raise public awareness on this issue, we will be able to reach out to more people with low vision and help them by providing guide dogs free of charge."
