Deafblindness is a unique disease under which people have maximum of possible limitations of main living abilities (ability for self-care, orientation, education, communication, work etc). At the same time right now there are no exact statistics how many deaf-blind people live in Russia, there is no registry of their needs, there are no programs of their support on systematic level.

April, 8, 2014
At the meeting of National Council of the Strategic Initiatives Agency under the guidance of the Russian President V.V.Putin was founded the Deaf-blind Support Fund So-edinenie (Connection)

The solution to create such Fund was motivated by the fact that regardless rich historical experience and achievements deaf-blind people in Russia has been left without attention from the government and society within the last decades.
