A young boy sitting in the lap of a blind man serves as the "eyes" for the man and another blind man standing behind them. Verso: WHO/5166. First Report on the World Health Situation. " In rural areas, disease means reduced manpower, leads to poverty". These are two among many in Southern Morocco. Both men are blind. In public places they recite from the Koran, recount old tales, live on the aims ther receive. The boy, sleeping in the noon heat, is "their eyes" He guides them, serves them, learning their "trade".
