Annual Impact Celebration

Despite the challenges presented by the pandemic in 2020, we were able to shift to meet the urgent needs of the communities where we work and make a bigger impact in a time of global crisis. On June 23, 2021, Operation Eyesight donors, volunteers, program partners, staff and board directors from around the world came together for our Annual Impact Celebration to celebrate the impact we were able to create together.
