We received €240 from Mr. Leijen from Venlo. He told us his extraordinary story: “I worked in Indonesia in 1993. The following year I developed Retinis which cost me the vision in my right eye. The cause could unfortunately not be determined, but it was suspected that it had to do with my stay in Indonesia. My left eye was also affected and I took preventive medication for more than eighteen years. In 2011, it became clear that the problem was caused by TB. The treatment I underwent afterwards saved my left eye. My wife and I were delighted and thought it something worth celebrating.”
Hans Leijen appreciates that the Eye Care Foundation strives to provide good eye care in developing countries. And he therefore asked his family and friends to make a donation to our cause at his party. Thank you!
