"Each of us, in big and little ways, can be a rainbow of hope for a child or community, here and now, and make the world a little better, one step at a time"

The Gift of Sight - A Partnership with The John Fawcett Foundation

In partnership with The John Fawcett Foundation, Rainbow of Hope are pleased to announce that with your help, we helped  2,338 women, men and children with the gift of sight last year. Without your support, these people would have stayed blind. On behalf of all these people, we thank you for your continuing support that enables us to change their lives in such a significant way.
We recently helped Rimayanti (pictured above), an eight-year-old girl from Lombok. She had been blind since birth and had never seen her parents, let alone learn to read and write at school. We brought her to Bali where she was operated by our senior ophthalmic surgeon.
When she first opened her eyes after the surgery she kept holding her father’s hand in total disbelief about the world that was opening up around her. A new life has begun for Rimayanti.  See more of her story in the video below, or to see more of what The John Fawcett Foundation accomplishes, please visit their website by clicking here!

Rainbow of Hope for Children Society (ROHFC) has recently begun to sponsor development projects in Africa, specifically Ghana, Kenya and Tanzania. The need is great there and education, health and agriculture are especially in need of assistance. In visiting other schools in the area it became clear that a nearby school, Nzavoni Primary School, was in dire need of new classrooms and staff working spaces.  For more information on this project, please click here!
