National weekend in aid of charities for the blind and visually impaired 2012
One child becomes blind every minute. Yet 80% of blinding diseases are avoidable.
Volunteer as a fundraising collector in Paris
Your chance to positively act against the plague of blindness : On the 6th and 7th of October 2012 why not make a gesture of solidarity and help raise money on the streets of Paris with the OPC and Lions Club de Paris. By simply giving a small amount of your time you could make a considerable contribution to saving the sight of millions of Africans.
Whilst volunteering, you will be part of a team of collectors and have the opportunity to raise extremely useful funds : They will go straight to the programmes, led by the OPC for the past 33 years, which fight against the diseases which cause blindness. The OPC is a member of the Comité de la Charte (the French Charter Committee for donating in confidence) which can certify the discipline and transparency with which is allocates its donations.

Do you want to fight against the diseases which cause blindness but can’t be a collector ?
The OPC is a registered charity which is made up of experts in ophthalmology who are fighting to preserve sight in the most deprived francophone countries and in France. It is an organisation which is approved by the Comité de la Charte which guarantees the discipline and transparency of its management as well as the good use of donations.
The Lions Cub is one of the top humanitarian organisations and was recognised in 2007 as the number one non-governmental organisation in the world. Made up solely of volunteers, who came together in a spirit of unity and solidarity, they are striving to help those most in need both globally and locally.
