Thanks to your help, Michael has his guide dog Taine by his side.

You may remember Michael from our Blind Low Vision Week campaign last October! We were overwhelmed by the support of so many kind New Zealanders like you, thank you!

Michael’s ambitions to continue his studies and advance his learning have been realised, through his match with a very handsome guide dog named Taine. Michael has always loved dogs, and says that having a guide dog so well matched to his needs and personality has been a joy.

Having Taine by his side every step of the way has made a huge difference for Michael, ensuring he gets safely to his university classes and to work.

Your kindness has helped Michael regain his independence and confidence to travel solo, without fear. Michael knows that with Taine guiding him, he can take on every challenge and navigate the world safely, and he will never be alone.

On behalf of Michael and all the people we support who are blind, deafblind or low vision, thank you for giving the gift of independence and bringing such happiness.
