Tasneema Yasmin Hi guys,

I am so excited to be travelling to Ethiopia in June with a team of eyecare professionals to volunteer for the charity, Vision Aid Overseas. This will be my first time on a project where we will be travelling to remote areas of the country to conduct sight tests and dispense glasses most likely to people who otherwise have no access to eye care.

I am very fortunate to have easy access to eye healthcare and develop the skills to provide the same to others. Sadly, this is not the case for everyone particularly in developing countries. The large majority have visual impairments with little to no access to trained professionals or even a pair of glasses that could help improve their day to day life tremendously.

A pair of glasses would prevent children from struggling at school and give adults their independence to be able to see to earn a living to support their families.

To be able to go out and make a difference, I need to fundraise the full amount so any donations would be highly appreciated! Your contributions will help immensely towards the work of VAO:
- £5 can pay for an eye test and a pair of glasses.
- £22 pays for a day of training for an eyecare worker.
- £100 can pay for a community outreach team to see 500 people.

Any donations, however big or small, will make a HUGE difference to someone’s quality of life. Please help support me and the amazing work of this charity as every person deserves the right to clear vision.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my page.
