Eyes on China-Guizhou 2014 charity project has been completed successfully in August 2014. 1000 poor cataract patients in Liupanshui City and the Qianxinan Buyi & Miao Autonomous County of Guizhou have been restored eyesight.

The delegation led by Dr. William Chiu, Chairman of ACPPRC, has a total of 32 members. It included 4 honorary guests, 2  guests from NSW Parliament Asia-Pacific Friendship Group : The Hon. Carmel Tebbutt MP and Mr. Jonathan O'Dea MP,  another 2 guests from Lions Club International: PDG Allen Fraser and PP Pearl Lin.

The delegation attended the two opening ceremonies in two different places in Guizhou- Liupanshui City and the Qianxinan Buyi & Miao Autonomous County.  They visited the local hospitals and  witnessed the cataract operations. They also visited 2 of 10 schools rebuilt by ACPPRC donations in remote snow disaster-stricken area of Guizhou in 2008.


Extract from the Hon. Carmel Tebbutt's Letter to Dr. William Chiu dated on 27 August 2014

I wish to congratulate you and your team for another successful "Eyes on China" mission to Guizhou. It was a privilege to be a part of the initiative and see firsthand the difference it makes. I was particularly impressed to see how surgeons in China are now training other surgeons in cataract removal, demonstrating the sustainability of the initiative.

Eyes on China makes such a difference at the grassroots level, restoring people's eyesight, with all that means for their quality of life. It is also very important as part of the broader work of building relations and people to people links between Australia and China.

Again, congratulations and thank you for providing me with such an inspirational experience.
