Why I care

… because you are faster and more stable than with one. Logic, isn’t it? Not if you are blind and you need a guide dog! In Switzerland the federal disability insurance only pays apporximately half the cost of a guide dog. The remaining cost comes from the foundation which relies on donations. Let’s make the dog complete – half a dog is not really helpful.

    Hello Franz
    
    You are right! Every support is so important.
    Thanks to their guide dog, blind and visually impaired people are able to move around almost everywhere.
    
    I am sure your community will support you on the tour and with donation in favor of the charity. 
    
    All the best, Mina
