Blind Golfer uses a Guide Dog trained in Hebrew

Zohar Sharon was a 26 year-old Israeli soldier when a chemical bomb that he was defusing blew up in his face. He has an amazing story, but the most impressive thing is that this man did not let blindness define him. With the help of his guide dog Venus and his caddy Shimshon, Zohar is the reigning World Champion Blind Golfer – a title that he has earned three times in a row!

This is the type of person you are helping when you support the Israel Guide Dog Center for the Blind. We are a small group of very dedicated people doing amazing work. We are the only recognized guide dog training facility in the entire Middle East! Israelis depend on us and we hope you will help us.

Create your own customized webpage – and help visually impaired Israelis to obtain the independence and mobility that only a guide dog can provide. You can edit your page, include your own photo, set your own goal, and track gifts that friends and relatives send in. We need people like you to help raise awareness of this important cause.
