    Weʼve raised £5,777 to fund desperately needed nursing staff & equipment for myself and other surgeons going to Cambodia to perform and teach cataract surgery

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    In November of this year myself and a handful of other eye surgeons from across the globe are going to Cambodia on a charitable mission to perform and teach cataract surgery and other eye operations for the local people who do not have access to good quality eye surgery. Many of the local population are blind from untreated cataracts and this means that their families must care for them which sometimes means there are not enough family members available to work and feed their families. We are taking time off from our local hospitals and practices and leaving our own families to fund ourselves on this important trip. Additional funds are essential and without your contribution the nursing staff and equipment that are essential for us to be able to treat patients will not be available. Please give generously. Every penny donated will be used to allow people with blinding eye conditions to have their sight restored.

      I am completely blown away by the incredible generosity of so many friends, family and patients. The Khmer Sight international group are incredibly grateful as I am sure the patients will be too. We are really excited to fly out next Tuesday and I will try and post some updates on various social media sites as well as this page. Best wishes. Allon
