Shadeen's story

Like most parents, Shadeen wanted to make Christmas really special for her children. But one Christmas, shortly after she started to lose her sight, Shadeen realised that things would never be the same again. 

However, this realisation was her turning point, and was when she began to lose her sparkle. Things gradually got worse; she lost her job as a paralegal, debts began to mount up and she was in danger of losing her home.

But with help from Action for Blind People and the support of people like you she was able to turn her life around.
