Rotary Club of Shrewsbury GUEST SPEAKER – Mike Griffiths

President Pat McLaughlin with Rtn Mike Griffiths (RC Oswestry) At our Rotary Club of Shrewsbury luncheon meeting on 23 November 2016, our speaker was Rotarian Mike Griffiths from Oswestry who introduced us to the Guildford Rotary Eye Project which he had become involved with through relatives in Guildford. Guildford Rotary Eye Project raises money to provide, equip and staff eye hospitals in India and Africa where there are still millions of poor people with eye problems who need treatment and cannot afford it. The project will support clubs which wish to organise efforts to support this admirable venture which seems to be a follow up to the Eye Camps which our club has supported so regularly over many years. It seems that one of the main causes of the eye problems is lack of vitamin A. It would be appropriate therefore if the governments of the countries involved tackled this as a priority.
