...'Experience Blidness'...

Last sunday, october 9, it was World Sight Day 2011 and in Coimbatore, Sankara Eye Centre organised in Brookfields Mall an event to increase awareness and support for their Vision 2020: 'The Right to Sight'.  This was aimed at the 20% paying customer base and it was great hearing today that it did pay off an that Sankara did get more customers in this week!
In the event a competition was set up for children to paint what they felt was the gift of vision and then an activity to 'experience blidness' for men & women volunteers.
Alex, Sverre & I participated as volunteers and, in separate men & women groups, once we were blind folded, and shuffled, we were to create a human chain holding hands. It was an experience in which once you were blindfolded you realised how dependent you are on others and how important it is to make efforts to help those blindly impaired.
In addition to some pictures of the event, this time we also have some small press coverage where our team members appear: Sverren is quoted in this article, and Alex, Sverren and I are photographed in the Coimbatore Chronicle & Coimbatore city express newspaper, you can see the copies below
