Al Jazeera World - Seeing Isn't Everything: Living Blind in Turkey

Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

Nearly half-a-million blind people live in Turkey. While attitudes are gradually changing in Turkey, awareness of blindness tends to lag behind awareness and understanding of disability in some other parts of the world. In Seeing Isn't Everything, four blind people living in Istanbul talk about how they are all too often defined through their disability and want to challenge social perceptions about what it means to live without sight in Turkey.
