Belinda’s Story: A Volunteer to the Core

Even though Belinda has only answered one Be My Eyes call, she is far from an inexperienced volunteer. Her volunteer resume counts positions as peer counselor, teacher and interviewer just to name a few.

What People are Saying

“People sometimes criticise scientific advancements, and they talk about everything that’s bad about the internet or everything that is bad about technology, but I think this is just proof that technology can be used in the best way possible.”

– Nawaal, Volunteer from Pakistan.

“I installed Be My Eyes and tried it out, did a couple of calls, and I really realised how enormous of a potential this app has.”

– Michal, Blind user from USA.

We know that this month has been very different and challenging for a lot of you, but we hope that you can find you in the communities that will always be there for you. And we can assure you that the Be My Eyes definitely will.

Stay safe!
The Be My Eyes Team.

See the world together.
