Guide Dogs on the Family Day
We participated in an organized Family Day on Sunday on the occasion of the Day of the city of Miskolc with workers of the North Hungarian Rehabilitation Center for Visually Impaired People. Interested visitors could try out with demonstrator guide dogs Dió, Delta and Diamond what it is like to walk blindfolded with a guide dog. For a few minutes they could experience how it feels to entrust a dog with your life.
Our colleague, Zoltán Vida, demonstrated the use of the Braille typewriter and everyone could see how their names look like in Braille. In addition, children and adults alike could test their knowledge about guide dogs in a quiz and many tried their hand at tic-tac-toe developed for visually impaired people with one of our volunteers using a guide dog as an opponent.
Despite the gloomy weather, we all had a really funny and exciting day.
