Angus Chow’s Birthday Fundraiser for New Sight Congo
For my birthday this year, I sincerely want to ask you to join me with donations to support New Sight Congo together, because their mission means a lot to me and in this time in Congo. I had the precious opportunity last year to meet Joyce Samoutou-Wong, a Christian eye medic and the co-founder of New Sight. Her passion for what they are doing is truly inspiring.
New Sight operates in the Republic of Congo to restore and protect sight, thus transforming lives and communities in the region. They have been setting up eye clinics in Congo and literally are recovering sight for the blind, bringing light into their darkness 🙌🏻. Their work is so needed, impactful and recognised that they are invited by the authorities to help build an eye hospital in Congo.
At this time of Covid-19, we may think that it’s challenging enough to prevent infection by staying home, social distancing and washing our hands with soap. Imagine what it is like in Congo, where there is no masks, insufficient access to running water & soap, and large family stays in one home? New Sight stepped in to educate & help their vulnerable community to prevent Covid-19. Find out what they are doing during Covid-19 here.
I hope that you’ll consider contributing to the amazing work that New Sight Congo is doing to celebrate with me this year (you can’t treat me a meal this year anyway!). Every little counts! Your generous support will be the best gift for me and the many in Congo. It will go far towards recovering the sight of the impoverished who lacked eye care and building the new eye hospital which will further benefit many more.
