The 2016 Vision Aid Overseas Christmas Appeal aims to raise £13, 635 to re-equip one of its busiest Vision Centre in Sierra Leone serving up to 1.2 million people.


Located in the capital city of Sierra Leone, Freetown, Connaught Vision Centre has already provided 88,000 people with life changing eye care and glasses. However, since it was established in 2009, the equipment have slowly deteriorated and broken down.Especially during the Ebola outbreak where certain equipment such as trial frames had to be dipped in chlorine bleach after each patient was tested to avoid cross infection.

 

“We don’t know what the fate of the workshop will be if all our equipment were to break down. Said William, Vision Centre Manager


Your gift this Christmas can ensure that Connaught Vision Centre can exist to continue to provide more people with essential eye care and glasses.More, people like Isatu Sesay, who until was given an eye test and prescribed with a pair of glasses could not see the classroom to teach properly. To give the gift of sight this Christmas, please donate today.
