The third and final ”Blind Walk” at Yeshwantpur saw the participation of over 700 people from all walks of life. The walk was led by Dr. Bhujang Shetty, Founder and Director of Narayana Nethralaya and Mr. Aby Abraham, Regional Director, Y’s Men International to promote the concept of eye donation.

While over 500 people participated in the first two walks, today’s walk touched a record 700 plus people who also pledged to donate their eyes. Visually challenged persons from Articulate Ability performed at the program held at the Amphitheatre in Orion Mall while Shooonya, a professional group of artists presented Dollu Kunitha through a skit to create awareness on eye donation.

We organized the three walks with the primary objective of spreading awareness on blindness and to educate the public on avenues of pledging their eyes. During the last walk held in Jayanagar, the Blind Walk received overwhelming support from leaders of various faiths and communities in a show of solidarity - all working towards a common goal to” let everyone see” and ”to make Bangalore the Eye Donation Capital of the World”. Sponsored by Vindhya Infomedia and the Orion Mall, the walk commenced from Narayana Nethralaya and culminated at the Orion Mall, Yeshwantpur.
