Over the past years, Mr. Matthijs Balfoort actively helped blind Vietnamese people by organizing activities for those ill-fated people, such as: providing audios books and Braille documents and giving training to library staff to help blind readers.

Those activities made great contributions to the diversification of service activities in libraries as well as creating favorable condition for disadvantaged people to have access to information.
