‘I have not seen but I have felt the world, with sight of Heart if not Eyes’
Many of us are scared of darkness and many of us have been living with it since their birth. On World Sight day (WSD) -an annual day of awareness held on the second thursday of October I seek your attention towards visually impaired beings who have been living their lives victoriously conquering all realms of defeats and fears.
2014 is the first year of this Action Plan by WHo to encourage ‘Call to Action’ for World Sight Day. The day is an initiative to raise awareness of blindness and vision impairment,influence Ministers and Governments to involve themslves to designate funds for such programmes and to educate target audiences about blindness prevention. Over 285 million people worldwide are living with low vision and blindness, some living without cure because of neglection and some must be striving for a solution which is near to impossible to get their sight back.
