Through the live video call, you and a volunteer can communicate directly and solve a problem. The volunteer will help guide which direction to point your camera, what to focus on or when to turn on your torch. As a sighted volunteer you can help just by installing the Be My Eyes app. A blind or a low-vision user may need help with anything from checking expiry dates, distinguishing colors, reading instructions or navigating new surroundings.
Through Our Eyes ProjectThrough Our Eyes Project
Help us make our app accessible for more people in their native language. Getting started is easy and straightforward. Helping through Be My Eyes is easy. What is this like for you? In Buddhist compassion teachings, this full presence is the grounds of Taking and Sending — a compassion practice that guides us in taking in the experience of another person, and then sending them care.
This practice awakens us from the sense of separateness, and we can begin to live from the reality of our shared belonging. To widen the circles of compassion and be part of the healing of our world?

People who attempted to sneak out, in need of food, were forced by the guards to return. Even though my aunt had been discharged from the hospital, she was too weak to go in search for food or prepare any for the family so we really suffered from hunger. No one brought us food or water for the first two weeks of isolation.
In the third week, a charity group brought bulgur, oil and beans.
Bringing sight to blind and low-vision people
We refused to eat the bulgur though, because it gives you a runny tummy; and if you have a runny tummy and are in an isolation zone they will definitely say you have Ebola and may take you away. So we bought gari granular flour throughout the three weeks because that was all my poor aunt could afford — it costs just Le 15 pence for a cup that can feed three people for a meal. Even now, with all this, there is a problem with educating people about Ebola. I just met two of my friends who told me about the illness of their uncle and how they were taking care of him at home, which they should not be doing as their uncle might have the Ebola virus.
Over children have been orphaned in my community alone.
What’s wrong with animal experiments?
Who is going to take care of them? How will they survive or even go back to school? Thinking a little towards the future, how do I go back to school? Where will my aunt get money to support our education again? It is hard to depend on others. We want to depend on our own like we were learning to. We are suffering. If Ebola does not kill us, maybe hardship and hunger will get us down if no one helps us before Christmas. This is what girls have to do in Sierra Leone when there is no money.
It is not right, but it is normal. If this Ebola does not end soon, many more girls will get pregnant before schools reopen and that will be too bad for the future of children in this country.
Through my eyes: High functioning autism
I should be in school now but all schools are closed indefinitely. I am worried because by the time schools reopen, there will be too many dropouts due to poverty and teenage pregnancy. Of course, those who get Ebola and their families suffer the worst.
