It’s estimated that more than 20% of under privileged children in South Africa have sight problems. These children battle at school not because of a learning disability, but because they can’t see. LumoHawk has a ‘vision’ to test the eye sight of 1 000 000 children over the next 3 years and to provide glasses to those in need!
In our efforts to achieve Madiba’s legacy of educating our nation, by assisting the children with sight issues, we need to raise 3 million rand per annum!
Joel Stransky will be raising awareness for this incredible project as he embarks on the big 1 000km challenge, which includes the Absa Cape Epic, full Iron Man, the Two Oceans Ultra Marathon and the Comrades Marathon.
In conjunction with the optometry faculty of the University of Johannesburg, headed by Professor Anthony Carlson, and John Weir from FOCUS OPTICAL, we are providing glasses to each child in need.
