Ayoka Productions: Destination Nepal

 

Dear friends and supporters,

I'm excited to share that Ayoka will soon get started on a
new project, a journey that will take us all the way to Nepal.

The Biblioburro has been an amazing adventure that has culminated with
Luis Soriano's nomination as a CNN Hero
 - the top 10 will be announced September 23rd and voting starts right
after for Hero of the Year.

The bar has been set high, but I believe you will find this next
project just as inspiring.
 


Our next film will introduce Dr. Ruit, a Nepalese eye-doctor, who has
pioneered a simple surgical technique used to remove
cataracts, which is a common problem in rural Nepal and affects up to
70% of cases of blindness there.
He travels regularly to the most isolated villages in Nepal, Tibet and
Bhutan to operate on people's eyes- for free.
In that part of the world, where there is little support for blind people,
Dr. Ruit does more than restore sight, he restores life.

We look forward to bringing you back his story but we need your help.

Ayoka relies entirely on donations which are 100% tax-deductible in
the US. Please donate here.

Should you be interested in donating air miles that would also be of
great help, please contact us via email. 

Thank you for your support,
 
Valentina Canavesio
