Let’s be together at REHA for the blind in Poland 2022

Chance for the Blind Foundation from Poland would like to invite you to take part in the conference called REHA for the blind in Poland.

What is it?

REHA is a multi-threaded event during which we manifest solidarity with our guests and present ideas for a world as open as possible to our community and all people who belong to disadvantaged groups of the population, including persons with disabilities. Together with our guests and supporters we strive to change the perception of disability and its consequences, as hindering everything, but nevertheless not forbidding or blocking anything. During the meeting we promote the most modern ideas on how to arrange the world in order to achieve the long-unattained goal of real equal life opportunities for people who are still largely excluded. To the guests gathered in conference venues as well as to the online viewers and listeners in many countries we present the achievements of scientists, engineers, rehabilitation specialists, organizations and institutions working for the benefit of the blind and visually impaired, especially the Polish ones. The aim of the Conference and accompanying exhibitions is to provide an opportunity to learn about the latest technical and methodological solutions created for this group of citizens.

The first REHA conference was organized in 1999 and since that time it has developed to the WORLD meeting of the blind, partially sighted, their families and friends. Every edition of the event brings new attractions and special elements, e.g. concerts of disabled and non-disabled artists performing together on one stage, chess tournaments and many more. We have been organizing our conference with important institutions and organization of and for the blind, e.g. Center for the Blind in Israel, local and central authorities of Poland.

Thanks to these collaborations, REHA grows year by year and is visited by hundreds of attendees.
