Sam and Duncan wanted to do all they could to prepare for Miracles Day on August 16 – that annual event when we support people in poverty by giving cataract surgeries that restore sight.
To get a little familiar with what it might be like for someone living with cataract blindness, the adventurous pair put on some blindness-simulating glasses, and tried out a couple of everyday tasks: getting dressed up, and making a sandwich.
- Get Set for a Very Special Brekky Broadcast from Sam & Duncan in Vietnam
- Meet Nhung; the Bright Little Girl You’ll be Helping on Miracles Day
The results were…umm… “mixed”.
Let’s just say our Brekky Show hosts now have a deeper appreciation for the gift of sight!
This year on Miracles Day, CBM is aiming to reach 35,000 people in the world’s poorest countries with sight-saving eye operations – enabling them to see their families again, as well as gain education, and employment.
Tune into the Breakfast Show from 5am to 10am, Monday August 13 to Thursday August 16
