At Simon Falk Eyecare, we try and support various Charities and our chosen Charity for 2018 is Vision Aid Overseas.
Founded in 1985, Vision Aid Overseas has been trying to help some of the poorest people in the world to see clearly. This is achieved by teaching and training, vision centres and outreach. According to the World Health Organisation restoring sight is one of the most cost-effective interventions to reduce poverty. The huge amount of people that are unable to learn due to the fact that are unable to see properly is estimated as 1.1 billion!
We are committed to try and help some of these people who could learn and earn by simply being able to see.
As a practice we will be trying to raise £5,000 throughout 2018 by various means, holding special events, raffling prizes and hope that all our patients will participate and help us achieve our target.
