|Tower Hamlets Council proudly presents a Baishakhi Mela in Banglatown, Brick Lane, in partnership with the following sponsors, whom we gratefully thank for their support.
BRAC UK Vision Bangladesh - 2011 Charity Partner
Please help restore sight to vulnerable poor people in Bangladesh by donating to VISION BANGLADESH at the Baishakhi Mela in Banglatown Brick Lane.
Vision Bangladesh is proud to be the official charity for Baishakhi Mela 2011. Vision Bangladesh is a groundbreaking partnership between BRAC and Sightsavers – two highly respected international charities. Our aim is to eradicate 80% of blindness in Sylhet by 2014 and across the whole of Bangladesh by 2020. For more than 600,000 adults and 40,000 children, it is still not too late to have their sight restored and be given the opportunity to lead independent lives. To realise this ambitious, but achievable task, we need to raise £3 million to perform 100,000 sight restoring operations in the Sylhet Division by 2014.
A simple 20 minute operation, costing only £20, can change a person's life forever. We can only achieve this with generous public donations.
How to donate: look out for us at the Baishakhi Mela where we will be on site with collection buckets. Please give generously, knowing that your gift will transform the lives of poor families in Bangladesh.
