Leading sight organisations merging to try to end global vision crises.
What would you do if you suddenly couldn’t read the words on this page? If you have adequate means, you’d probably have someone take you to the hospital immediately when experiencing vision loss.
However, not everyone has the privilege of seeking care. Fortunately, philanthropist James Chen saw the need to address those losing their sight while lacking resources. He recently partnered with the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness to further his dream of helping the world see more clearly.

Tesco partners with food sharing app to cut food waste.
Tesco has partnered with food sharing app and social enterprise OLIO to help reduce food waste in stores across the UK in a move which should help feed more people in crisis in the local community.
The new partnership builds on Tesco’s existing food surplus donations programme, including its Community Food Connection scheme with FareShare, which already sees it donate 2 million meals every month to food charities across the UK.
The partnership with OLIO follows a successful six month trial, which was held earlier this year, at 250 Tesco stores which had the most food surplus and which saw a high rate of pick up.
