Parkinson is a neurodegenerative disease that has no cure as per the technological advancement level so far. It affects the mobility of patients as the disease advances.The situation is more worse in a nation like Ethiopia where there is no organization working on awareness, support, research and development on Parkinson's (PD). This year (April 2019), we are planning to conduct PD walk so as to raise financial assistance for poor PD patients to buy Walker, walking stick, wheelchair.
PD patients in Ethiopia suffer from the effects of PD. They are economically poor and unable to buy aided for mobility to enjoy day-to-day life like other people do. Impaired mobility and the resultant despair are the real problems on the ground.
It will solve by delivering tools and equipments that will improve mobility
It will improve their internal satisfaction and confidence to relate with people and their environment. It will win them respect from people.
