“Eyes on China” is a significant large-scale charity project initiated and hosted by Australian Council for the Promotion of Peaceful Reunification of China (ACPPRC) annually to help low under privileged cataract patients living in remote underdeveloped ethnic regions of China. The mission is operated by the combined efforts of dedicated eye specialists and invaluable medical staff from Australia, China’s mainland and Taiwan.
"Eyes on China- Guizhou 2014" is the 12th annual free cataract medical project organised by ACPPRC.
In the course of previous missions, our medical teams traveled to the remote parts of Tibet, Sichuan, Yunnan, Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia, Guizhou, Sichuan and Guangdong, Gansu, Hunan & Fujian, Qinghai (2012 , 2013) in China, to provide free operations to more than four thousand poverty stricken people of various ages and national minorities, thus enabling them to regain their valuable sight, wellbeing, and bright future. We also donated medical equipments valued over a few million Chinese dollars to local hospitals, and had set up a Training Centre for Eye Specialists in Chengdu to train local specialists.
Our work has gained support and accolades from here and abroad. Many more supporters volunteered their time and efforts to participate in this worthwhile mission. The success of all these missions is undoubtedly a collective effort of many Sino-Australian officials, medical team members, the magnanimous generous donors and many tireless workers. It is indeed a continuation and further development of the spirit of care and humanitarianism as carried out by the famous and respected Dr. Norman Bethune.
“Eyes on China” has become a vehicle to sow the seeds of love for the harmony of mankind and the affection of different nationalities. These medical expeditions provides a platform to promote friendship, harmony and exchanges between 56 ethnic Chinese groups, whilst also promoting cultural exchanges, medical, trade and economic collaboration between Australia and China.
