Next Goggle Works 6 July 2018

Many complex factors contribute to poverty, but one simple contribution to fighting it is to help people to see better, so they can study and work. In fact, worldwide, half of all sight problems can be solved by using glasses to aid reading and close work. So join us on Friday 6 July in Colchester to help prepare another batch of secondhand glasses to send to our mission partners in Malawi. Starts 19:30 and there’ll be plenty of refreshments to keep you going. For more details, phone 01206 622712.

Team returns after successful trip

We are very happy to report that our visiting eye-care team has returned to the UK safely. It was a full and busy two weeks! Thanks to all in Malawi who made us welcome and who helped us along the way. We’ll be posting more about how the eye care services are developing, as well as what the challenges are, and what opportunities are opening up. A few pics to be going on with: the new autorefractor is ready for training staff at Embangweni Hospital…
