us hear the voice of the blind choir
The blind choir of Sri Lanka Federation
of the Visually Handicapped (SLFVH)
was revived in 1996 to bring to the public, the talents and
capabilities of the visually handicapped.
these members of the choir cannot see the audience, it does not change
their performing skill and their determination to give their best to
those who have placed their confidence in them.
to The Sunday Leader, job
placement, public awareness
and fund raising officer,
SLFVH, Rienzi Benedict and an old St Benedictine, said that earlier in
the 1970’s and 1980’s the choir used to perform in a big way. But
something happened and the choir faded away. But in 1996 they were
revived, their voices were heard again.
