AMMAN — The Ministry of Culture on Sunday pledged to print the Jordanian Constitution in Braille for all institutions concerned with training people with visual impairments at its own expense, in addition to providing financial support to an association for persons with disabilities in Aqaba, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The announcement came during a visit by Minister of Culture Haifa Najjar on Saturday to the Aqaba Association, in the presence of Awqaf Minister Mohammad Khalaileh, who inaugurated the first art exhibition for people with disabilities.

Najjar was briefed on the association’s achievements, in cooperation with artist Suhail Baqaeen, owner of the Scent of a Colour initiative, to teach children with visual impairment to draw by smelling colours and associating them with natural scents. 

Najjar highlighted the duty of supporting persons with disabilities, facilitating their lives and “unleashing their latent creativity”, according to Petra. 

Expressing her pride in partnering with the Awqaf Ministry, the Public Security Directorate and all the concerned institutions to achieve this goal, she stressed that “the Culture Ministry cannot work in isolation”.
