8.00

‘Fred always said, "If all I've achieved is launching Ruit, then my life has been a success, because I know he'll change the world." Today, I know that looking on from above, he would be so proud to see that our remarkable friend has done just that, one pair of eyes at a time. I hope you find Dr Sanduk Ruit's story as deeply inspiring as I do.’ Gabi Hollows

Come along to Riverbend on Friday 13th July at 6.30pm to hear from Dr. Sanduk Ruit, the Barefoor Surgeon  who, like his mentor Fred Hollows, took on the world's medical establishment to give the life-changing gift of sight to hundreds and thousands of the world's poorest and most isolated people.

The Barefoot Surgeon is the story of a boy from the lowest tiers of a rigid caste system who grew up in a tiny, remote Himalayan village with no school to become one of the most respected ophthalmologists in the world and a medical giant of Asia.Compelling and compassionate, it is also the story of a young doctor who became Fred Hollows' medical soul mate and who chose to defy the world's medical establishment and the lure of riches to make the world a better place.
