At present, there are more than 170 000 visually impaired persons in Hong Kong. However, facilities and ancillary arrangements in the community still pose a lot of barriers, causing inconvenience to the visually impaired and other disabled persons, and thus leaving much room for improvement. The social enterprises under Blind Union, responding to the government target of developing accessible facilities and services to lead all sectors of the society to jointly build an accommodating community, have been making every effort to promote accessible facilities in a bid to avail to the visually impaired the information and services available to sighted persons, and, at the same time, provide the visually impaired with employment opportunities.
The work of our social enterprises includes providing web accessibility consultation services under Web Access for All (WAFA), selling accessible products for the visually impaired under Easy Buy, and selling barrier-free facilities and products.
