Sight partially restored in blind people using electrical implants!
Losing your sight of vision can affect people in many ways. In some cases, not many people can recover from it. However, a team of researchers at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston have almost achieved their goal to help those who can’t see be able to see the world by using implanted electrodes. We at Deetox hope that these researchers are able to accomplish their goals.
Cranes reunited Belgian families with elderly relatives
Based on reports during the last six months, elderly people have been the most affected by the virus. Tristan Van den Bosch, manager of Group-f maintenance company, allowed families to use his cranes to connect with their elderly relatives in Belgium.
Being in isolation can be a difficult task for many people around the world. We hope Tristan Van den Bosch and other companies, give the people of Belgium to see their families often.
Deetox collaborates with Gulf for Good to help people all over the world
Gulf for Good had organized a virtual climb on May 15th. Many of their projects had come on hold due to the virus. Additionally, people in LEDC’s are not able to get clean sanitation facilities. They were able to raise more than 6000 dollars to help people all around the world. This was double the amount of their original goal. We at Deetox would like to thank everyone who participated in the virtual climb, and we can’t wait to see you in the next one!
