Sightsavers Sunday #who #bbc
Ever since my father exchanged my expensive Christmas gifts for a card which read something like: “A donation was made in your name to SiteSavers” Although I did deserve the gifts – I had been very good, thank you very much – I saw that there were people who needed a gift more: The gift of sight.
“[Today] Sightsavers is asking churches across the UK to join together in worship to mark World Sight Day.
