Hi guys!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.

In September 2018, I, alongside three colleagues, will be undertaking a 'Vision Aid Overseas' assignment in Zambia. We will be volunteering to provide eye care services to the local community, a facility that many living in the country unfortunately do not have access to.

This will be a predominantly teaching based assignment, so we will be involved in training and mentoring the local ophthalmic students and nurses, hopefully allowing for a more long term, sustainable solution to eye care. In addition, we will be providing eye tests in outreach areas.

A few 'Did you know?' facts you may or may not find interesting:
- 285 million people are visually impaired globally
- >75% of this visual impairment is completely avoidable and treatable!
- >40% is simply due to needing a pair of spectacles!

If you wear glasses yourself, you will know what a world of difference they can make.
You can change the world for one person with your donation.

Thank you for your support :)
