Parkinson walk to help 60 parkinson patients

Summary

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.
