The District Action Group on Blindness Prevention (DAGBP) under the Chairmanship of PAG Dato S Kulasegaran (RCKL DiRaja) takes the lead in organising the 8th Seeing Eye To Eye Conference.   

 

The theme “Eliminating Blindness in ASEAN & Beyond” is to provide an insight into current developments and issues related to blindness among children and adults. The feasibility and affordability of intervention to prevent and treat blindness, especially in underserved communities. How NGOs and like-minded organisations in ASEAN countries identify communities and carry our early intervention programs on blindness prevention working in hand with primary health caregivers, government institutions and professionals.

 

The Conference hosted by RC Penang led by Organising Chairman Dato’ Tan Gin Soon is expected to attract 300 participants including Rotarians from D3300 and D3310 and invitations to neighbouring Districts are being extended.

 

SEES 2018 is organised in conjunction with another major project “Sayangi Mata Vision Clinic” where an exercise of screening more than 25,000 underserved children and adults to identify about 3,300 beneficiaries who have vision impairment and requires spectacles.  The project the 2nd following the 1st last year is funded by One-Sight, USA.  A team of 52 Technicians and Optometrist from One-Sight will be managing the SVC Clinic from October 8th – 12th, 2018 hosted by AIMST University. The project is led by RC Butterworth, RC Bandar Sq Petani and RC Kuala Kangsar in partnership with LIONS International and several other NGOs.
