See the Way appeal launched
with Diane Louise Jordan
On Friday 13th November 2020, we were joined by broadcaster Diane Louise Jordan, well-known for presenting iconic TV shows Songs of Praise and Blue Peter, for a special online event - to mark the launch of our See the Way appeal!
Watch Diane speaking at our See the Way launch and the films from her visit to Rwanda below.
Diane spoke about the personal impact of vision problems on her family, her life-changing journey to see our sight-saving work in Rwanda and why she’s passionate about helping build a world where nobody is needlessly blind.
The event included a screening of “Etienne’s Miracle”, a heart-warming film about a 10 year-old boy who has sight-restoring surgery, made during Diane’s trip to Rwanda in February. You can watch the film below.
Diane travelled to Rwanda with her grandson earlier this year, where they met 10-year-old Etienne and witnessed the life-changing impact of sight-restoring cataract surgery.
During Diane's trip to Rwanda, she also met 73-year-old Vincent. It was an intensely personal journey for Diane as Vincent, like her father, has the eye disease glaucoma.
