Two blind women living with blindness provide computer training and job services to people with disabilities at a nonprofit called Donka. Ann Byrne and Kimberly Delaney in the suburbs of Chicago are helping others succeed. Byrne lost her vision from congenital glaucoma. Delaney lost all vision in one eye from injuries sustained during a Vietnam War massacre; she went completely blind because of leukemia, which may be the result of Agent Orange exposure.
"Nobody knows your potential," Byrne says. "You have to work for it. Here at Donka, we give our students tools."
Please contact SDCB if you are struggling with vision loss or blindness. We offer several programs that can improve your life quality.
