Seva Canada's 2017 Annual General Meeting
Join us for Seva’s 35th Anniversary Annual General Meeting (AGM)
Date: December 1, 2017
Location: *New Venue*
Creekside Community Recreation Centre
1 Athletes Way
We will be celebrating all that we have accomplished together over the last 35 years from determining that the leading cause of blindness is cataracts, to the first surgical eye camp to our research that discovered the gender inequity in the treatment of blindness. And most importantly, to the 4 million people who have had their sight restored through surgery and the millions more who have received eye care services. Helping us commemorate the occasion will be some inspiring people from Seva’s partner programs.
Space is limited.
Please RSVP here or at 604-713-6622
