Furthermore, the participation of this large number in the "White Cane” initiative was an opportunity for them to support the visually impaired people. We were pleased with the huge participation in this initiative that reflects their humanitarian aspect and with the opportunity, which aims to support such humanitarian initiatives and encourages the volunteers to participate in this Walkathon.”
