Sameera Foundation and Association of Visually Impaired (Attock District) organised International White Cane day on 15th October 2019. The association organised a Rally in the town and the event was celebrated by the dignitaries of the local community, public and visually impaired & Blind of the District. Sameera Foundation gifted white canes which were distributed by Deputy Commissioner of Attock District for visually impaired or blind.
International White Cane Day takes place on October 15th each year and the day is observed worldwide to recognise the movement of blind people from dependency to full participation in society.
Throughout the world, the long white cane is used by people who are blind or visually impaired as a tool for safe and reliable navigation. The white cane is a symbol of the user’s skills and talents, mobility and independence. It also allows the sighted person to recognize that the user is visually impaired.
