The LumoHawk Foundation embarked on its Vision 2020 initiative almost one year ago and what an amazing year it has been! In a year filled with learning and ‘growing pains’, some mistakes and some revelations, we continue to feel exceptionally privileged to be part of a journey that has changed the lives of over 400 children who received brand new, custom made spectacles. 400 South Africans, future leaders and captains of industry, whose lives have changed and improved forever.
We have had many incredible partners over the past year without whom none of this would have been possible. Pivotal Data remain the backbone of our existence, providing administrative assistance, financial support and the inspiration required to continue on a daily basis!
The Genop Healthcare Group have provided us with the highest quality eye screening and testing equipment available. This has enabled to us to speed up our screening processes and to reach far more children than was possible before. We remain incredibly grateful to Genop for all their guidance, their expertise and the time they have spent teaching us about the eye-testing process and the equipment.
We are also privileged to have built a partnership with some incredible ophthalmologists at VisionMed in Northcliff, Johannesburg. This group of doctors has provided children who require more extensive treatment the opportunity to come through and be treated at no additional charge. We have been overwhelmed at this kind gesture and look forward to continuing our relationship with them next year.
Fury Ford Motor Group have amazingly and kindly sponsored our transport requirements, including 1 full time vehicle for events and testing, and assistance when needed to transport students and optometrists to testing venues.
Overall, it has been a privilege to be part of something so much bigger than ourselves – over 4000 children screened, over 1000 children tested and more than 400 children provided with quality glasses. It is not possible without the support of all our sponsors and supporters to whom we say a massive THANK YOU!
We now look forward to 2020, filled with hope and excitement at all that is to come! Team work truly makes the dreamwork! #strongertogether
