An "Eye for an Eye" is a Public Art Action being undertaken by Viard House for Keys to the Kingdom. Every Viard Student will have their ey
In a range of venues around the wider city, St Peter's College students from Viard House hope to engage the public and get them to consider what it is that the Fred Hollows Foundation do every day to help those who can't see.
"It's quite a big project, but very exciting" says Mrs Lisa Purda, HOD Visual Art.
The Fred Hollows Foundation carries on the work of a legendary New Zealander, the late Professor Fred Hollows. Fred was an internationally acclaimed eye surgeon and social justice activist who championed the right of all people to high quality and affordable eye care. The Fred Hollows Foundation shares Fred’s vision of a world where no one is needlessly blind, and works to end avoidable blindness in 30 developing countries across Asia, Africa and the Pacific.
The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ works in the Pacific Islands, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste where four out of five people who are blind don’t need to be; their condition is preventable or treatable. We restore sight to the needlessly blind and train local eye health specialists to provide eye care services in their own communities.
