This Thursday 15 August, CBM Miracles Day, we’re asking Hopeland to join radio stations around Australia in blessing more than 40,000 people with the gift of sight-saving surgery in Nepal.
Hope’s goal for Miracles Day is 8000 miracles — we’re almost there!
Imagine all of those children, mothers, fathers and grandparents having their sight restored — thanks to you.
