On Friday 21st February and 28th February 2014 Al Mustafa Welfare Trust will be holding two fundraising dinners in Birmingham and Manchester as part of their 7 city tour entitled ‘The Gift of Vision’. The tour also marks a special visit from the founder of Al Mustafa and Former Federal Minister of Pakistan Haji Muhammad Hanif Tayyab. This will be his first visit to the UK after a considerable amount of time.

The Gift of Vision Country Tour is aimed at raising awareness about cataract operations and highlights the work of the charity over the past 30 years. There are approximately 285 million people worldwide that live with low vision and blindness who cannot participate in day-to-day activities and are unable to earn their livelihood due to poor eye sight or temporary blindness. This country wide tour is to help restore sight to as many people as possible.

Al-Mustafa Welfare Trust has carried out over 5,000 eye operations in 2012-2013. A cataract operation costs as little as £35 per person. The ‘Gift of Vision’ Country Tour will help in achieving this target and help make a difference to many people in the developing world. Ikhlaq Hussain (Director of Al Mustafa) commented ‘In 2013 we held our first event celebrating our 30th Anniversary. This year with the support of donors and members of the community around the UK we are holding this country-wide tour which will see us visiting 7 cities.’

The events are set to be inspiring and educational evenings for the entire family and members of the community. Speakers include Sardar Yaqoob (President of Azad Kasmir), Mohamed Ali (CEO Islam Channel), Lord Nazir Ahmed, Bilal Hussain (Quran recitation) and Omar Ali (host). There will also be live entertainment from Najam Sheraz from Pakistan and Ahmed Hussain.
