Challenge

In countries like Ethiopia, information about Parkinson Disease is not disseminated like other diseases. Because of this PD patients are forced to be isolated from other community members and stigmatized. The stay at home without visiting health centers. Most of them are economically poor and cannot buy medicine. Hence we plan to create awareness through the walk & the fund obtained from the walk will be used to buy drugs & other necessities for 50 poor PD patients.

Solution

Patients will be accepted by the general public. PD patients hey will get drug & other supports from the PD walk.

Long-Term Impact

Attitude o the community will be changed concerning the physically challenged Parkinson Patients & their family members. Quality of life will improve for PD patients & their family members.
