Primary School Activities Held to Mark White Cane Safety Day

Primary schools across the country held various activities to mark the White Cane Safety Day, which fell on October 15.

The activities taught students the knowledge about eye care and the special facilities for the visually-impaired people, aiming to enhance their awareness of eye health and call for showing more care to visually-impaired people.

The White Cane Safety Day, observed on October 15 every year, started in 1970 after a declaration by the International Federation of the Blind, to stimulate the general public to have a better understanding of blindness and visual disability, and to make people more aware of the white cane as a mobility aid.
