‘Let there be light’ concert in Cambridge to support people living with blinding conditions in the world’s poorest places

Posted on: Thursday, 4th October, 2018

Three groups of musicians from East Anglia will be holding a concert in Cambridge, on 20th October, raising awareness and funds for the work of CBM to support people living with blinding conditions in the world’s poorest communities.

Local musicians Cambridge Chord, Cambridge Brass and Stellar Acappella, have been so inspired by the life transforming changes of our work in the poorest countries of the world that they decided to put on a fundraising concert in Cambridge.

75% of blindness is avoidable, this means that 3 in 4 people live with blindness that don’t need to be. Without the benefit of a free health service, millions of people around the world are needlessly blind because they can’t afford simple surgery or treatment that could save their sight. And all too often, if you live in a poor community, going blind means losing your chance to go to school, earn a living or live independently.

With the generous support of individuals, churches and local fundraisers around the country - like our local musicians Cambridge Chord, Cambridge Brass and Stellar Acappella, CBM is working to tackle blindness and poverty in the world’s poorest communities.

CBM is facilitating treatment, training health workers, working to create inclusive education, training teachers, and developing strategies to counteract prejudice. And promoting inclusion, and enabling self-help groups to advocate for themselves to create change.

Come along and show your support!
