25 September 2022 – L’Occitane Malaysia Race for Vision was back after the pandemic. We’re extremely grateful and happy to see more than seven thousand of runners joined the run. Despite the gloomy weather in the morning, the love shown by everyone towards us were obvious.
The Race for Vision 2022 successfully raised RM40,000 to the Home. The aim of the race is to promote awareness on fighting avoidable blindness. The receiving funds will be channeled to continue the free cataract surgeries project with Penang Adventist Hospital. We have screened more than 100 elderly patients since 2018 and we will continue to strive for ways to promote awareness in fighting avoidable blindness.
On behalf of St. Nicholas’ Home, we would like to express utmost gratitude to L’Occitane Foundation Malaysia, Pavilion Bukit Jalil and participants.
