Join us for a special evening with Diane Louise Jordan

Posted on: Monday, October 26th, 2020

Join CBM and broadcaster Diane Louise Jordan, well-known for presenting iconic TV shows Songs of Praise and Blue Peter, for a special LIVE online event at 7pm on Friday 13 November.

The free event will be aired LIVE on 13 November from 7-8pm. Diane will speak 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. With CBM UK Chief Executive Kirsty Smith, she will also launch an exciting fundraising initiative to prevent blindness in the world’s poorest places during the evening.

The event will include 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, thanks to CBM’s supporters. Diane will also answer questions from the audience.

In February, Diane travelled to Rwanda to meet people living with sight problems and witness the life-transforming impact of eye treatment. Accompanied by her 12 year-old grandson, it was a deeply personal and emotional journey. Diane is no stranger to the challenges of sight loss as her father lost the vision in one eye to an industrial accident and then, in later life, developed the eye disease glaucoma.

In Rwanda, she saw how eye treatment that we take for granted in the UK is out of reach for thousands of families living in poverty, and the devastating impact that this has on lives. But she also witnessed how straightforward treatments can transform lives, restoring hope and opportunity.
