Seva Canada 2014 Annual General Meeting & Donor Reception
You're invited to join us to celebrate all that you have helped accomplish over the past year at Seva Canada's Annual General Meeting (AGM) on November 7, 2014.
Plus, you'll be able to hear from two very special guests from our Seva Tibet team, Mr. Kunga Tashi, Seva Tibet Sight Program Manager and Ms. Dolma Chugi, Seva Tibet Assistant Program Manager.
Kunga, a 2014 International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) Eye Health Leader, established Seva Tibet in 2002 and led its expansion to include most parts of the Tibetan Autonomous Region around Lhasa as well as the Kham and Amdo Regions in Eastern Tibet. He has been instrumental in building and strengthening high quality eye care programs that includes service to the poorest people.
Dolma, who joined Seva Tibet in 2005, coordinates Seva Tibet support for eye care programs in 12 government hospitals that serve 4.4 million people. Her work includes building local capacity for program management and designing outreach activities. She also assists local ophthalmologists to gain training opportunities and to raise funds to support program expansion.
