What is your most memorable moment with Operation Eyesight?
My most memorable moment at Operation Eyesight was when some of our international colleagues travelled from Calgary to Ghana for video shooting. It was fantastic to connect in person, face to face and in the same town. The opportunity offered the chance to share, learn and better understand different cultures.
