The Deafblindness Cane

This white and red cane represents people with deafblindness. It has red bands on the white material, in order to differentiate it from the classic cane for blind people.

When you see someone carrying this cane, you know this person is hearing impaired, so do not try to yell or whistle. The best thing you can do is to wait or to touch the persons’ arm and to offer him/her your arm as guidance.

During the challenge To Santiago for Deafblindness we will use this cane, so other pilgrims could also learn about deafblindness.
