Lipdub follow-up: The eyecare mission with the Seva Foundation

Posted by on 14 January 2016

It’s been a while since I last updated my blog (4 years !), and I just noticed I never posted about what happened for the kids after we finished the Lipdub.

Thanks to 74 donors, I was able to fundraise about 3000 USD which was not the target amount I pledged for the eyecare mission, but it didn’t really matter as I partnered with the Seva Foundation. The SEVA Foundation is an American NGO which operates in different countries over the world including Cambodia, and whose mission is to provide eyecare to communities in need.

We were eventually able to screen more than a 1000 kids over 5 days from 2 different schools: The Learning Foundation and Krasing Roleung Primary School (all the kids playing in the Lipdub, and also all the kids who didn’t but were at the same school than them). 9 of them received a pair of glasses and 6 of them had surgery.

Here’s a video shot during this mission that shows the great work that has been accomplished by the SEVA Foundation and the nurse and surgeon of Angkor Hospital for Children
