The Helsinki and Uusimaa Association for Visually Impaired (HUN) is the blind and partially sighted people's own organisation. If you are visually impaired and live in the Helsinki region, or in the county of Uusimaa you can apply for the membership of HUN.
HUN is the biggest member association of the Finnish Federation of the Visually Impaired. More than 2200 visually impaired people are the members of HUN. Most of the association's service and activity spaces are located in the Service and Activity Centre for Visually Impaired in Helsinki called Iiris. HUN embraces also 6 local societies for visually impaired. The focus of HUN is to provide services for the visually impaired so that they may choose to lead fuller and more independent lives.
