A new year means new goals and ambitions. With this often comes pressure, normally unnecessary pressure. If 2022 taught me anything it was to aim high. Whether that is in terms of philanthropic endeavours or business, aiming high is what will ensure success.
As we start to look towards the New Year, it is important to take a moment to reflect on the past and set ambitious goals for the future. This is especially true for the Tej Kohli and Ruit Foundation, which has made great strides over the last twelve months to ensure that everyone has access to the resources they need to thrive. As we enter 2023, let us look to the New Year with hope, ambition, and resilience, inspired by the work of the Tej Kohli and Ruit Foundation teams.
With only four days of 2023 passed by, the Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation have already planned an outreach camp in Ghana. At the end of January, teams will travel to Ghana to begin the mission of curing thousands of cases of needless cataract blindness. Expanding our mission to other countries has always been our plan and we are extremely excited about our plans in Ghana.
2023 is also a milestone of a year for our Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation co-founder, Dr Sanduk Ruit. In July, Dr Ruit will attend a ceremony at Anglia Ruskin University where he will be awarded the Honourary Doctor of Science in celebration and recognition of his services to eye care and healthcare worldwide.
This year will also see the Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation introduce several familiar faces. For the first time, our organisation will be gathering a team of social media influencers with a variety of interests but with one common goal - to support people. Our Global Influencer Team will support the Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation by sharing our mission and visiting the countries we work in alongside our medical teams.
This year, we will also partner with the Himalayan Cataract Programme and the Fred Hollows Foundation to take our mission further. Both of these organisations share the same goal to rid the world of needless cataract blindness and to end extreme poverty everywhere by 2030.
Join me and the Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation as we take our ambition and cataract surgery across the world and move further towards curing the developing world of cataracts.
