In October, Operation Eyesight joined the global eye health community in celebrating World Sight Day and the undeniable fact that we’re “Stronger Together.” This theme carried through to the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness’ 10th General Assembly in Durban, South Africa, which I had the opportunity to attend. It was four days chock-full of meetings and presentations, including three presentations by our international staff.
I’m incredibly proud of the great work Operation Eyesight is doing at the community level, and as I listened to our staff showcase our program models and demonstrate the impact we are creating, well… I got goosebumps. And after visiting our teams in Zambia and Kenya and seeing our projects first-hand, I know that we truly are stronger together.
Our sight-saving work is possible thanks to our talented and dedicated staff across three continents, our strong relationships with local governments and partner hospitals, and, most importantly, our generous donors. Thank you all!
I hope you enjoyed my photo highlights! I’d love to chat with you further about Operation Eyesight’s work in Africa, as well as India and Nepal. Send me an email – I’d love to hear from you!
