A local charity organization in Buraidah, Saudi Arabia decided to help a visually impaired citizen reach the mosque daily.
They installed a textured path on which blind people could easily walk. The path contains tactile bars on the ground, which act as a tool to help blind people.
This inspiration was taken from the new safety crossing installed in Gloucester in 2015.
The path leads the blind people to the designated area. It so far has been proven helpful to blind people where they can easily walk on it and easily reach their desired destination without needing too much guidance from the surroundings.
The same texture path in yellow color was installed just outside the entrance of a blind man’s house in Buraidah to lead him to the mosque. We hope this idea will prove successful, and once it happens, it will help many visually impaired people.
I would be happy to see more pavement paths being built in other areas of the country for blind people. This is how we can change the world and help the community with our little contributions.
