the miracle of sight …

These eye doctors perform miracles every day.

The Fred Hollows Foundation needs your help. My Environmental Group donates monthly, a cause worth every cent.
Dear Tom,My name is Ruth Hollows, and I’m one of Fred’s daughters.

My twin sister Rosa and I were only 3 years old when Dad died, but all our lives we’ve grown up hearing stories about him.

So when I travelled with Rosa to a remote eye camp in Nepal last year to see Dad’s work up close, it was the most amazing experience of my life. 

I know you recently received our survey and we are looking forward to hearing your thoughts, but today I wanted to tell you about this life-changing trip.

We met a patient called Lakpa, who you can see above with me. He went blind four years ago. He was a proud family man and missed seeing his family terribly – especially his beloved grandchildren. 4 out of 5 people who are blind don’t have to be, and your ongoing support is helping to change this. But an additional gift of $25 from you today could restore sight to someone else just like Lakpa. Can you help?

A day after Lakpa’s operation, Rosa and I gently removed the bandages his eyes. He just couldn’t stop smiling, and said to us:  “I can’t describe it in words, I am so happy….I have my independence back.”

Lakpa’s transformation is Dad’s dream coming true – and it can only happen with your help each month. I hope you will support us today with an extra gift of $25.

It’s been 22 years since the world lost our dad Fred Hollows. His work could have been forgotten, but because of you it’s become stronger and stronger. Thank you.

Warm regards,

The Fred Hollows Foundation
P.S. Dad’s work isn’t done, and we can’t finish it without you. I hope we can count on your extra support today with an additional gift of $25 and restore sight to someone else just like Lakpa.
