Gift of Sight Trust Golf Day 1 September 2017

You can give the #GiftofSight

Did you know that 4 out of 5, or 80%, of the world's blind, are avoidable so?

Avoidable blindness is defined as blindness which could be either treated or prevented by known, cost-effective means. Although there are many other causes of vision impairment, the Gift of Sight Trust seeks to address the main causes of avoidable blindness, in order to have the greatest possible impact on vision loss in South Africa.

We can only achieve our goals with your help.

If you are a private individual or a company, there are many ways to support the work of the Gift of Sight Trust. Without your sponsorship, gifts and donations, we would not be able to extend the hand of opportunity and work together to eliminate avoidable blindness.

The Gift of Sight Trust is a registered entity and all funds donated are audited by the registered auditor.

How can you give the #GiftofSight?
  1. Book a Fourball for the Charity Golf Day at R3,000 
  2. Sponsor a hole for R3,000 and earn the right to offer food or beverage at the hole

  6. Make a Donation of your own value

Dr Johann Krüger

For the past 12 years, Dr Johann Krüger of the Tygervalley Eye & Laser Centre , offers his services free to perform Cataract Operations to those who need it most, but are unable to afford it, as part of the October #RighttoSight Eye Care Awareness Week.
Some of these patients have been on waiting lists for cataract surgery at state hospitals for years. The Khangella Eye Theatre at The Tygervalley Eye & Laser Centre offers its theatre facilities free of charge and several pharmaceutical companies make this possible by donating intraocular lenses, eye drop medication and other materials used during the procedure.
