As the year draws to a close, I’ve been reflecting on all the incredible things we’ve been able to accomplish, thanks to the support of our donors. Just last week, the Financial Post named Operation Eyesight as one of the top 25 charities in Canada – a great honour for Operation Eyesight, and one that has been made possible by our amazing staff and donors.
For those of you who don’t know, as the head of Operation Eyesight’s international programs, I am based out of Hyderabad, India and oversee our projects in India, Ghana, Kenya and Zambia. Every day, I see first-hand the tremendous difference Operation Eyesight makes in the communities in which we work; I get to see donor dollars hard at work, transforming countless lives and entire communities.
As we look back at our biggest accomplishments in 2015, donors and staff alike should be proud of the great work we’ve achieved together, for all the world to see! Below are some highlights from 2015.
I’ve only just scratched the surface of Operation Eyesight’s many sight-saving projects in Africa and India. On behalf of all of us at Operation Eyesight (from Canada, to India, to Africa), and on behalf of all those you have helped, thank you!
