KUALA LUMPUR: Intense darkness, not even a tinge of light to act as a guide, only bare hands to sweep the inky, sorrowful air as a means of finding a way.
This darkness embodies the chilling reality of the struggle faced by the visually impaired with the rich imaginings of establishing awareness.
Stevens Chan Kum Fai, founded Dialogue in the Dark Malaysia (DID) in the year 2012, as a way of illuminating the conundrum of the visually impaired to the sighted community.
