Guild Meeting 21 June 2014

Rob Dalziel, guest speaker

Guest speaker, Robert Dalziel

Rob Dalziel is the Chairman of the Board of the Fred Hollows Foundation, and he was our guest speaker on Saturday 21st June.
Rob has a passion to eliminate blindness in the world and, through this organization, has developed a 2nd passion. That is to get clean water to those who currently cart the little available every day for domestic use. Tracoma (an eye infection causing blindness) can virtually be eliminated if people have enough clean water to wash their faces.
Rob is wearing a heavy woven cotton wrap/blanket from Ethiopia.
