Celebrating 10 Years of New Sight

Celebrating 10 Years of Restoring Sight, Changing Lives

Ten years ago, Henri and Joyce, and their 3 young children, arrived at the Republic of Congo on 7 April. Soon they established the first eye centre in the north of the country, in the middle of the jungle, to serve the blind and visually impaired and tell them the good news that they can see again.

That New Sight is here at all is down to the hard work and sheer determination of families, volunteers, staff and supporters. And it will only be here in 10 years’ time, ensuring hundreds more families facing or living with the loss of sight get the care they so desperately need, with your continued support.

Throughout 2022, we’ll be marking this milestone birthday by remembering the many lives changed by restored sight and memories made at the eye centre and community, by celebrating how together we created a very special place and by looking ahead to the next 10 years.

There are more ways you can get involved in our 10 year celebrations, so stay tuned!
