“I’m inspired by Operation Eyesight’s vision and mission that has touched the lives of millions. It’s rewarding to know that my efforts count in making the world a better place. My goal is to give back sight to as many people as possible, especially those experiencing poverty and living in remote locations with little or no options for treatment.”
