Silent Auction for Seeing is Believing Charity

On the 8th November 2011, two donated paintings will be up for sale at a Silent Auction in aid of  the 'Seeing is Believing' Charity. This charity is a global initiative to help tackle avoidable blindness.


They raise money to prevent and treat avoidable blindness in the poorest of communities around the world.
Without immediate, effective action the number of blind people worldwide is expected to increase from 39 million to 76 million people by 2020.
But, 80% of blindness can be treated or prevented, and the interventions are some of the most cost-effective in health-care; a cataract operation costs on average US$30, Vitamin A treatment around US$1.

This is hosted and sponsored by Standard Chartered Bank whom have a number of my paintings  in their collection.
