My story

[p]The Dee’s Knees Team consists of the London St John Eye Hospital team and some lovely ladies from Premier Promotional Products who have always been extremely supportive of our work.[/p][p]On Sat 10[sup]th[/sup] June, Diana (AKA Dee), Noreen, Vivian, Amy and Marie-Claire, as well as Shirley and identical twins Jess and Suzanne will be taking part in the Obstacle Color Rush, a 5k run with 20 obstacles and 8 colour stations where we will be covered in coloured powder.[/p][p]Note: Isla was also meant to be joining us but the 10[sup]th[/sup] June is now her due date, so she is excused from partaking. Feel free to sponsor her good intentions though! [/p][p]St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital Group is the only charitable provider of eye care in the Palestinian territories. With our hospitals and clinics in Jerusalem, Gaza, Hebron, Anabta, extensive mobile outreach programme and doctor and nurse training programme, we managed to treat 128,000 patients last year, a third of which are children.[/p][p][b]We treat patients regardless of ethnicity, religion or ability to pay.[/b][/p][p]Although 80% of all blindness is preventable, much of it caused by poor diet, diabetes and cataracts, the people of the occupied Palestinian territory (OPT) have a rate of blindness ten times higher than in the West.  Poverty levels are high.  The West Bank is home to some 700,000 refugees and 51.8% of all families live on less than US$3.15 per person per day.  [/p][p]Our work changes lives.[/p][lt]table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"[gt][lt]tbody[gt][lt]tr[gt][lt]td[gt][p][b]£10[/b] could buy 3 bed sheets for baby cots[/p][lt]/td[gt][lt]/tr[gt][lt]tr[gt][lt]td[gt][p][b]£25[/b] could buy a diagnostic Corneal Topography procedure [/p][lt]/td[gt][lt]/tr[gt][lt]tr[gt][lt]td[gt][p][b]£50[/b] could buy Outreach education sessions in the rural West Bank[/p][lt]/td[gt][lt]/tr[gt][lt]tr[gt][lt]td[gt][p][b]£100[/b] could buy laser treatment for diabetic retinopathy[/p][lt]/td[gt][lt]/tr[gt][lt]tr[gt][lt]td[gt][p][b]£200[/b] could buy 4 phaco packs, which are used in cataract operations [/p][lt]/td[gt][lt]/tr[gt][lt]/tbody[gt][lt]/table[gt][p]Your support of this very worthy cause is vitally important to them.[/p][p]Thank you![/p][p] [/p]
