Cardiff optometry students to provide eye care in Moldova

A team of six students and five qualified optometrists will see over 1500 people

Testing in Moldova
Optometry students at Cardiff University will travel to Moldova in July to provide sight tests and spectacles in rural areas where eye care services are unavailable.

A team of six students will be led by second year student, Avni Hirani, and five qualified optometrists, who will see over 1500 patients.

The student team needs to raise a total of £4500 to cover the cost of spectacles and travel, with accommodation and food provided by the local community. Donations can be made via the team’s JustGiving page.
