Complete with a shaded tent, cooling misters, water and ice, private specialty-designed port-a-potties, and shuttle service.

Gifting the Gift of Sight
 

The gift of sight is amazing anywhere. But in Ethiopia, the gift of sight is a gift of freedom for both the one who was blind and their entire family. It changes the future for generations to come.

In the third world there are few programs to help those with disabilities. Blindness often means that a family member – usually a child – must become the blind person’s 24/7 seeing-eye helper. And that can be the end of childhood for that child: The end of school and of their hope of a better life.

With help from many volunteers, support from the Tri-Cities’ Sunrise Rotary group and working with Doctor Samuel Bora of Ethiopia, we can perform sight-giving operations at a cost of $50 each.
