Sight for the Blind

 

I want to use this opportunity to welcome everyone to this important presentation. I chose Teppi one of theEthiopian province for this presentation because during the course of my research, this region ranks highest in the case of River blindness in Ethiopia. I am very concerned for the people who live around this area where mostly affected by River Blindness. After this presetation, a lot of people especially who live around Teppi area, governmental and non gevernmental bodies will participate in minimizing the River blindness in this area. Please click this link to view the presentation Envi Power Point Presentation (f)
