On the night of 23rd March, the National Council for the Blind in Ireland hosted the Oireachtas Vision Awards 2023.
This is an opportunity for the NCBI to recognise the excellent annual achievements of the visually impaired in Ireland and shine a light on the the various support channels that exist.
Shabra CEO, Rita Shah, was presented with the NCBI Philanthropy Award in recognition of her outstanding work. Rita, with the support of the committee, have in recent years raised much needed funds for life changing equipment for the Eye Department in the Mater Hospital Dublin.
Always a team effort, and building on the promise of the late Oliver Brady – co-founder of the charity – the extended team at Shabra Charity Foundation continue to pledge support and fulfil the promise of Oliver, helping specialists provide a better quality of life to the visually impaired.
In line with that mission, Shabra Charity Foundation will be announcing a series of events in the coming months to raise funds and help improve lives. Be sure to check our site regularly to keep informed of events in your area!
