I’m delighted to be joining Vision Aid Overseas as CEO. With an estimated 640 million people worldwide disabled simply because they don’t have access to eye tests and spectacles the challenge is enormous. I feel inspired by what has already been achieved by Vision Aid Overseas, our members and supporters and I’m looking forward to working with everyone to help ensure that no one lives in poverty because of poor eyesight and no one lives with poor eyesight because of poverty.
