Rais­ing Funds For Vi­sion­save

ZbBZ (Singapore) - - IN FOCUS -

Since last year, char­ity gala Eye Ball, jointly or­gan­ised by the SNEC and SERI, seeks to raise funds for the Vi­sion­save cam­paign, and they are hop­ing to hit $25 mil­lion by the year 2020. Th­ese funds will be used to as­sist needy pa­tients with eye ail­ments, pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion and re­search as well as build health­care fa­cil­i­ties for vi­sion care. This year, Eye Ball will be held on Nov 4. Dr Ho Ching Lin, chair of the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee for Eye Ball, wants to turn it into a land­mark event for Sin­ga­pore’s oph­thal­mol­o­gists. She be­lieves pro­mot­ing pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion and cul­ti­vat­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of oph­thal­mol­o­gists are an in­vest­ment for the fu­ture. She also hopes that there will be fewer peo­ple in each gen­er­a­tion who would have to con­tend with the agony of go­ing blind. Mem­bers of the pub­lic who are in­ter­ested in mak­ing a do­na­tion can visit www.vi­sion­save.sg.
