We targetted Penang Sentral, the newly opened main transportation hub for rail, sea and land at Butterworth. We are conducting a training on hands-on how to guide the blind safely and awareness programme on blindness for staff and management from Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd (MRCB), Keretapi Tanah Melayu Berhad and Prasarana Bhd (Rapid Ferry and Rapid Bus). Approximately 57 external participants along with the assistance of nine staff took part in this exercise – they were shown white cane techniques, sighted guide, usage of directional tactile and warning tile and others. Prior to hands-on training on guiding the “blind”, they were involved in presentation on awareness on blindness such as eye condition, type of blindness, demonstration of sighted guide, orientation and mobility and also briefed them on support and services provided St. Nicholas’ Home.
