BENGALURU: To mark the occasion of their sixtieth year anniversary, Sindhi Seva Samiti organised a walkathon to create awareness of eye and organ donation on Wednesday. It was flagged off from the Sindhi High school on Kumar Krupa road.

The four km walkathon was inaugurated by Sandeep Patil, Deputy Commissioner of Police, and Alumni of Sindhi High school. “Community issues are always a great source for creating awareness and making changes in the society,” he said at the occasion. More such community initiatives should come up and stand together in fighting against societal problems, he added.

In addition to the walkathon, many other activities were also conducted including a workshop on eye care was also organised in association with Narayana Nethralaya.

The Walkathon was led by the students of Sindhi High school. Deepak Narang, President of Sindhi Seva Samiti said through this walkathon they wanted to encourage people to come forward and donate eye and organs, as it is a way of giving back to the community.

“This is a special year for us, as we have achieved several milestones while being in the service. It’s an initiative to create awareness in the field of organ donation,” said Meenakshi Lamba, a participant of the walk.
