A documentary screening to raise funds for an outpost eye clinic in Nepal. 

OUT OF THE DARKNESS is an inspiring documentary by Stefano Levi about a Nepali eye surgeon, Dr Sanduk Ruit, who treks for days to the remote village in the mountains of Nepal where he was born to set up a portable hospital and offer eye surgery to the villagers. Blindness, which is a common affliction in developing countries like Nepal, is not only a personal tragedy but a devastation to the economy of whole families and the community.

The fundraiser on AUGUST 14 will help equip a rural outpost eye clinic at Kapilavastu in the south of Nepal which will serve a catchment of 20 million poor people.

It will also be the launch for a new hand cream, coriander and rose, made especially for Rose Charities by Nellie Tier New Zealand. !!

Running time: 1 hour 20 minutes
