The Helen Keller School of the Blind is not only for children but for adults as well. One of our members, brother Ted Henter is a big supporter of this school,(even though he does not permanently reside in Panama - but visits frequently) providing them with donations, updated equipment and brail software for use on computers. Brother Ted participates annually in our Ocean to Ocean Cayuco Race. Ted is also our first blind member. We are honored to have his help and support.




 




Providing hearing aids.

We have a few blind people who are currently being sponsored by Elks Lodge #1414. We have two people who give of themselves unconditionally. Our deep appreciation and thanks to our eye care specialist,surgeon and friend, Dr. Arosemena for the countless hours he gives to help our cause and Brother Mike Progana for his untiring efforts to aid and assist as many sight impaired individuals as possible.
