Weʼre raising £500 to Improve Eyecare in Malawi

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 one month a dozen Cardiff Optometry students, including myself, will be embarking on a once in a lifetime opportunity to provide free eyecare to thousands of people in the local communities of Malawi, Africa.

Our agenda for the month:

-Testing approx 3000-4000 people

-Providing free spectacles for these people

-Working in local hospitals

-Teaching local university students clinical techniques

-Visiting local orphanages

-Screening for ocular conditions

-We have funding for over 100 cataracts surgeries

-Working in a school for children with albinism

Malawi has been categorised as the least economically developed country in the world, with only 9 consultant ophthalmologists covering a population of 18 million.

With your donated money, we will be able to fundraise for a number of spectacles that will dramatically change the lives of our patients. Along with travelling, buying equipment and our accommodation around the country. Our team is aiming to raise a total of £9000 between us. Any donations will be greatly appreciated and has the potential to change someone's life for the better.

Please like/share and if you would like any more information about the trip or how you can help please feel free to contact me.
