Do you have braille books that you no longer need? Wondering what to do with all of those books in EBAE (English Braille American Edition) now that we have switched to UEB (Unified English Braille)? A non-governmental organization (NGO) in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq is looking for braille books for their students. In the past the local authority printed braille books for them, but now, due to the economic challenges facing the region, they have not received any new books for more than three years.
