A Blindfold Walk would be organised on World White Cane Day
A Blindfold Walk is to be conducted by Society for Rehabilitation of the Visually Challenged and Chavara Cultural Media in association with Crowne Plaza Kochi along with other hospitality groups. The event is being organised to spread awareness about the responsibility, we, as a society owe to the Visually Challenged to provide the right of way to the White Cane bearers on our roads.
The World White Cane Day observance is scheduled to commence at 4 PM and the Flag off of the Blindfold Walk would be by 4.30 PM. The rally start point is Le Meridien and the finish point would be Crowne Plaza Kochi. All the hotels in Cochin have offered their support and participation. The participants will blindfold themselves to empathize with the challenges faced by the Visually Challenged and experience their troubles firsthand.
