During missions to the north of Burkina Faso, we noticed cases of night blindness. This led us to found the Youzondo Association, whose name, in the Moré language, refers to this condition. Operation In many areas we chose to create village associations consisting of a committee of eight people and two delegates per district. They meet every quarter to discuss a topic related to nutrition, communication or agriculture. Their activities are coordinated with the national Burkinabé Association for the Prevention of Youzondo. It all began under the palabras tree at Petit Samba. As usual between 1pm and 4pm we were discussing everyone’s concerns, particularly with regard to children’s health, and this was how we heard about Youzondo sickness.
