BREAKTHROUGH IN ASSISTIVE DEVICES BY BLIND SA

Blind SA is proud to have recently launched Mali-Bhala – a money counter and signature guide – in association with the Disability Rights Awareness Month. This locally created device comes in two standard sizes that are designed to fit either in a person’s wallet or pocket.

It is used as an indicator to differentiate between the five South African ‘Mandela’ bank notes and
as a signature guide. It will give thousands of blind and partially sighted individuals the independence of signing documents and counting money.

The cost for a single Mali-Bhala is R20 or R35 for a double pack that includes both the pocket and wallet size devices. Blind SA strives to make assistive devices like this one more accessible and affordable to the blind community. For more information or enquiries on this device, please contact 011 839 1793. Blind SA launches another inexpensive but very handy tool for daily living
