Cause: This event will be raising funds for the HOPEthiopia Eyes of Hope Ophthalmic Services Project in Harbu Chulule, Ethiopia. This project provides Eye Care services, including cataract and trachoma surgeries, free of charge to the poorest of poor. The project was started by Dr. Asrat Gebre, a local Ethiopian cataract surgeon in response to the significant need in the area. Studies have found that 7.9% of the people over 40 in the region are blind due to avoidable causes. Furthermore, approximately 30% of children are infected with trachoma. Your support through attendance at this event would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions please contact Candace at: candace.vinke@gmail.com
