The doctors and staff of Sydney Eye surgeons are dusting off their running gear to raise some money for Foresight Australia!

Help us support the Eye Care charity that has focused on teaching and training eye care workers for over 40 years. Foresight has a goal of training local staff to make Foresight no longer needed. This started in 1978 in Bangladesh - a project in Chittagong that is still running self-sufficiently 4 decades later.

Help us to raise money for the ongoing work we do in other low resource countries like Solomon Islands and the Philippines.

Thank you to everyone for your support! The run is next weekend, fingers crossed I can make it to the end...
The week after, I'm heading to Solomon Islands to meet with local colleagues to see how we at Foresight Australia can assist in meeting their goals.
Our philosophy is that priorities should be set by those who know best - local staff on the ground, and that the best support is to assist in teaching and training, rather than providing service delivery.
Knowledge flows both ways, and I get a huge amount from being involved. Thanks again for your support in helping achieve some of these goals...
