More work to be done

Tonight, I had the pleasure of attending a presentation by Dr Sanduk Ruit from the Tilganga Eye Centre in Nepal. Dr Ruit is continuing the dream and work of Fred Hollows and it was inspiring to see how far the Foundation and the Tilganga Eye Centre came in the last 20 years. Over a million patients have been attended and over 73,000 eye sights restored – thanks to donations from all over the world. There is much more to do, as every 5 second someone in the world goes blind although 75% of blindness is avoidable! Think about this next time you watch a great movie with friends or enjoy a beautiful sunset with your family.
