Grace Vision’s COVID-19 Response

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic Grace Vision’s primary eye care programme to remote clinics in the rural Eastern Cape, has been suspended. The safety of our elderly and compromised patients who are at high risk is of paramount importance. Cataract surgeries are also on hold. Presently, our optometrist, Don Thorrold, attends to urgent and emergency eye care only at our Grace Vision office based on the grounds of Zithulele Hospital.
While it is still unsafe to resume our programme in its entirety, we continue serving our patients who require critical care. Chronic eye medication, as well as glasses, are delivered to local clinics for collection by our patients.
Tackling the COVID-19 pandemic together in this time of need, we have partnered with other NGO’s in the area. Our field staff are assisting with making cloth masks and delivering valuable COVID-19 information, soap, sanitizer, and vegetable seeds to families in the community. Grace Vision’s vehicles, drivers, medical facilities, and accommodation have been made available to the Zithulele Hospital Management should they be required.
We sincerely thank all our corporate and private donors who continue to support us during this challenging season. We look forward to resuming our entire programme as soon as it is safe to do so.

Mandela Day Long Walk for Sight

Mrs Yvonne Jackman will celebrate her 70th birthday, by walking 67 kms between Zithulele Hospital and Canzibe Hospital in honour of Mandela Day in aid of Grace Vision.

ABOUT THE WALK

- We aim to create awareness of the work done by Grace Vision

- To highlight the vast area that they cover

- To raise much needed funds

The walk will take place over 3 days, 15 to 17 July and cover a distance of 67 kms.

On the 18th of July the closing function will be held in East London.

Grace Vision is asking schools and businesses in cities around South Africa, to adopt a school in rural Eastern Cape for 1 year to cover the cost of screening learners to not only identify visual problems, but also provide these learners with free prescription spectacles.
