Federation Of Blind & Partially Sighted Marks Centenary
The Hungarian Federation for the Blind and Partially Sighted celebrated its 100th anniversary in Budapest. The federation has 22 member organisations today, working for a better quality of life, inclusion and empowerment of the seeing impaired, Sándor Nagy, head of the organisation, said.

Károly Czibere, state secretary at the human resources ministry, said the approach to helping people with disabilities has changed. Instead of focusing on their shortcomings, they are now regarded an asset for society, he said. The NGOs representing and protecting their interests are important contributors to the process, he said.

The government supports the rehabilitation of those who have lost their sight as adults and has extended its related service to the provinces, too, Czibere said.

It is also funding the training of guide dogs and IT accessibility, he said.

Zsolt Nyitrai, the prime minister’s commissioner for strategic social relations, said the government always consulted with the federation on issues pertaining to people with disabilities. He read out Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s greeting.
