The Inter-municipal Organization of the Blind and Partly Sighted

The primary rights for blind people which are guaranteed by law for blind persons are: the protection of blind persons from discrimination, exploitation, abuse, employment, exemption from taxes, health care, education, access to information, rehabilitation, travel, electricity and telephone expenses and other benefits and rights. The NGO considers that all these rights and benefits have not been realized until now. Therefore they will undertake the initiative "Implementation of the Law for Blind People" aiming to advocate to certain directories, and to try together to accomplish these rights and benefits that the law provides for the blind, such as free urban and interurban travel with 50% discount on tickets for the blind person and companion; to release them from paying property tax in the municipality, access to information; and to give discounts in  electricity consumption.
