HYDERABAD: Over 100,000 people to walk blindfolded to express solidarity with the visually challenged people across the country through a program called BlindWalk.

It will commence in Hyderabad at KBR Park at 7 am on October 12, The World Sight Day and ends at LV Prasad eye institute.

BlindWalk is the brain child of Project Vision, an organisation based in Bangalore who has found a very novel way to celebrate the World Sight Day.

BlindWalks will be held in more than 200 locations across the globe, making it the largest eye donation campaign in the world. Anyone can participate and register for the BlindWalk free of cost, which has the information about all the locations and contact persons.

The striking experience of BlindWalk is that the normal blindfolded people are led by visually challenged people. The participants hold on to the blind person in the front after being blindfolded, depending on him/her to walk. This experience is very special and life changing that gives a glimpse into their dark world.

BlindWalk will be conducted in more than 200 locations across India and abroad on October 12th, Thursday this year. Apart from US, China, Srilanka and Nepal, the Walk will be connected across the length and breadth of India, coordinated by Project Vision with a multitude of social, educational, religious, health, corporate and cultural organisations.

The objective of the Walk is to motivate people to donate eyes. Despite interest in donating eyes and having pledges done, most people are not able to take the steps for actual donation, when a death happens in their family due to emotional reasons. The program connects the Eye Banks to the community, making their services and contacts available to everyone.
