The Joy of Giving – An Annual Charity Dinner by FFCF
I have been supporting Friends For Cause Foundation, Canada since 2017 for their initiative of helping the underprivileged population in Rural India.
The Joy of Giving is an annual Charity Dinner organized by Friends For Cause Foundation (FFCF). The founder of FFCF, Yogesh Bhatia, visits India every year to carry out his passion for the Gift a Sight Project. The project started with the tragedy of losing his brother. He makes sure that he does this work very diligently and in process follows all medical guidelines – from picking out people on the streets to get their vision tested, to having the surgeries done on those who require it. It is all planned and executed under co-operations of his friends and the guidance of his mentors and support of local NGOs.
This year charity dinner is taking place at Khanna Banquet Hall, Surrey on September 24, 2022. Please visit https://bit.ly/The-Joy-Of-Giving-2022 to buy tickets for the charity dinner online. If you would like to donate, or need more information, please contact Yogesh Bhatia at 604-366-6942
About The Blindness Issue in India:
India is the home of the world’s largest number of blind people, 75% of these are cases of avoidable blindness. The prime cause of blindness is unawareness of several eye diseases and refractive errors. Early detection of which can not only prevent blindness, but can also vastly improve the performance and the quality of life of the individual (be it a student, a professional, a home maker or a retired personnel).
Give Back to Your Roots – Give Back 2 India
Give Back 2 India is an initiative to raise awareness about some of the great causes in India and motivating Indian Diaspora to Give Back to India. We leave India and become residents and citizens of another country but India never leaves from our hearts and we always look back to pay it back somehow. Give Back 2 India is such an platform to provide opportunities to Indian Diaspora to connect and start giving back to India.
