At the Annual Congress 2005 of the Swiss Society of Ophthalmology (SSO), the Christian Blind Mission (Christoffel Blindenmission – CBM), the Swiss Red Cross and the Commission for Ophthalmology for Developing Countries again shared a booth, thanks to the generosity of the SSO. Our programs for the prevention of childhood blindness have long enjoyed the support of SIGHT AND LIFE, and it was important to us to include information about your activities in our display and to disseminate your very useful documentation. We had a good number of visitors, many of whom took the SIGHT AND LIFE Newsletter, and we gave your CD to several ophthalmologists who are active in, or come from, developing countries. The excellent Healthy Eyes Activity Book, which we had in the English and French versions, also attracted quite some attention and we distributed all the copies available. For as long as I remember, probably for almost 20 years, SIGHT AND LIFE has provided, year after year, the whole supply of vitamin A needed by the numerous CBM programs engaged worldwide in the prevention of childhood blindness. It has also provided literature and information on this topic as well as on nutrition and ways to prevent children going blind due to this sad disease. We will therefore be very happy to continue displaying and distributing your material every year, and to make the resources you provide known to many people, so that all ophthalmologists and other visitors committed to helping people in developing countries can use them for our common goal of preventing avoidable blindness.
