Hi my name is Zaira and I am going to Ethiopia! I am travelling with a team of fantastic volunteers to help those at a disadvantage whether it be a little girl who can't complete her education because she can't see the board at school to grandparents struggling to read bedtime stories because they can't afford specs. As part of my mission this summer I will hopefully be able to reach as many people in remote villages around Ethiopia providing free eye tests and spectacle but also teaching at local unversities and colleges to aid the opthalmic teaching so that care can be provided long after we have come home!
By donating you gifting many lives with sight, something we all take for granted.
£5 can pay for an eye examination and spectacles for a child
£22 can pay for a day of eye care training
£472 can pay for a month's training for an Optometry technician
£750 can pay for a Professional Volunteer to provide one-week of humanitarian eye care
£1,280 can pay for a brand new refraction kit for an eye care worker
£9,056 can fund the equipment and raw materials needed to establish a new Vision Centre
So please donate to this worthy cause and for further information please visit
