One of The Foundation’s own – Amanda Huang who works across China, Cambodia & Laos, has been featured in the new Australia China Stories book, a publication marking the 50th Anniversary of Australia-China diplomatic relations.
The book, which was commissioned by the National Foundation for Australia-China Relations, was officially launched on Sunday 13 November 2022 at an event in Sydney.
Included in the book are 50 vignettes from individuals who form part of the rich fabric of the Australia-China relationship and reflect the rich diversity of modern Australia.
On page 41 Amanda speaks about her life, Fred’s legacy and the great contributions that The Foundation has made to strengthen the link between China and Australia over the past 30 years.
Amanda also speaks about our ongoing programs in China and how we’re building capacity to ensure Fred’s vision of a world where no one is needlessly blind or vision impaired.
The Fred Hollows Foundation began working in China in 1998. The Foundation primarily worked in the Jiangxi Province on a critical project to help prevent cataract blindness.
Over the past 25 years in China, The Foundation has worked to end avoidable blindness, by advocating for greater eye health access in rural provinces.
