On 14th June 2023, The Fred Hollows Foundation hosted a virtual supporter briefing.

If you weren’t able to join the live event (or you would like to see it again), you can watch it below. This is a great opportunity to hear from our Country Managers in Kenya and the Philippines who will share how your support is improving access to eye health services for children living with avoidable blindness.
