Is your vision loss a hitch in moving around and performing required chores? Do you always have to be dependent on a family member or a friend to take you around to your favorite store or a movie theater? Now worry no more!!! Helping Hands app is here to assist you. After years of experience in dealing with persons with vision loss, we realized that one of the major problems they face is not having an escort to assist them in time of need especially when they move around outdoors. That’s precisely when the idea of Helping Hands came into existence.
