CHAIRMAN’S

REPORT

Our auspicious year for sight. And one of

the toughest years that most of us have

ever experienced. The impact of the global

COVID-19 pandemic has been felt in nearly

200 countries across the globe, including

Sight For All’s partner countries in Asia and

Africa. Fortunately, the virus doesn’t appear

to have any blinding consequences, however

the widespread lockdowns and economic

impact will undoubtedly reduce the ability of

patients to access or afford quality eye care in

their countries. It will also hinder the ability of

our ophthalmic and optometric colleagues

to provide the best for their patients and to

continue their own local teaching initiatives.

They also run the risk of contracting the

illness themselves due to the proximity

required in the eye examination process.

The cornerstone of Sight For All’s activities in

low income countries is education, handson

education through our Fellowships

Program in Australia or the provision of

training in those countries which is our

Reverse Fellowship Program. With the viral

outbreak in early 2020, Sight For All had to

suspend all educational activities. A tough

time for the Sight For All team, a tough

time for our colleagues and their patients.

Rather than be beaten, our staff remained

positive, creative and powered up into

innovation mode. In June, we held our first

Online Ophthalmology Congress, with over

85 participants from six countries on each

of the two days. A resounding success, with

plans for more interactive conferences in the

coming months. The team also created a

monthly online tutorial program, in most of

the subspecialty areas of the profession, so

that we could continue to mentor our

valued colleagues.

to eye centres across Myanmar. And we

developed a COVID-specific website through

which we continue to share information.

Understandably, our fundraising efforts

have been dealt a significant blow, however

we remain financially secure, allowing us

to employ our first Eye Health Educator,

Jo Croft. Jo joined Sight For All early in the

20/21 Financial Year and has contacted

many state and national not-for-profit

organisations working in the sector. She will

soon commence awareness-raising activities

for community groups and schools across

the state. A tough time, yes, however also

an exciting time as we continue our valiant

efforts to teach the world to see.

As always, we cherish the ongoing support

from each and every one of you – our

dedicated Visionaries and our generous

donors and sponsors. On behalf of the Sight

For All Board and staff team, thanks for all

you do to keep our vision strong. And from

myself and the Board, enormous praise must

go to our dynamic Executive Officer Ms Judy

Hatswell for steering us through this crisis, and

to Dr Cesar Carrillo, Dr Ye Win, Mr Sith Sam

Ath, Ms Neeta Bhise, and Lee-Anne Beswick

for their tireless work. We are incredibly

grateful and we are always looking forward!

We were also able to pivot some of our

funding from the Australian Government

through the Australian NGO Cooperation

Program to provide personal protective

equipment, including 180 slit lamp shields,

EXECUTIVE

OFFICER’S REPORT

The 2019/20 Financial Year presented Sight For

All with periods of great excitement, along with a

series of challenges.

Our Board, staff, volunteers, donors and

supporters were delighted when our Chairman

and co-founder, Dr James Muecke AM was

awarded 2020 SA Australian of the Year in

November 2019 and then 2020 Australian of the

Year in January. The award provides recognition

of the tireless and passionate work in blindness

prevention undertaken voluntarily by Dr Muecke

over many decades. We are all immensely proud

of Dr Muecke’s achievements and grateful for his

energy and ongoing commitment to Sight

For All.

World Sight Day 2019, held on 10th October was

a real highlight of the past year. Our ‘Power of

Ten Campaign’ devised by Marketing Manager

Neeta Bhise included a fun-filled installation

and tremendously successful matched giving

campaign, raising more than $37,000. We

held our first event across multiple states on

20.02.2020. Films For Sight was held in Adelaide,

Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, providing an

opportunity to share an awareness of our sightsaving

activities to a new audience. Films For

Sight was to be our last gathering of supporters

for the year.

Friday 13 March 2020 will be forever etched in

my mind as the date Sight For All operations

changed as a result of COVID-19. Our small

Adelaide team, along with two Country Officers

in Myanmar and Cambodia were able to

quickly adapt to working from home. Together

with our dedicated Board of Directors, we

reassessed priorities, pivoted projects, developed

opportunities, embraced virtual communication

and worked exceptionally hard.

Sight For All has become a stronger organisation

because of COVID-19. We have implemented

new projects locally and in-country and have

created a virtual teaching model that has

developed relationships across nations. This

model will continue well into the future.

With low or no COVID-19 cases in Adelaide

over recent months and with the reduction of

restrictions, we have been fortunate to return to

a ‘new normal’. We are, however, aware that this

is not the case for millions of others in Australia

and worldwide. My thoughts are with all who

are still enduring the devastating effects of this

pandemic.

I thank the Board of Directors and staff team of

Ms Neeta Bhise, Dr Cesar Carrillo, Dr Ye Win and

Mr Sith Sam Ath for their dedication, support

and hard work throughout the year and in

particular during the months of March – June

2020. I acknowledge the engagement of our

Lead Visionaries who have worked with us to

develop new initiatives. I especially thank our

Treasurer, Mr Phil Jaquillard who has worked

very closely with me in monitoring our financial

position throughout the pandemic.

Over the past 12 months, Sight For All bid

farewell to Board Directors Ms Jody Rowe

and Dr Michelle Sun and staff members Ms

Heidi Sandison and Mrs Leanne Harms. I

thank Jody, Michelle, Heidi and Leanne for

their commitment and support during their

respective periods of engagement with our

organisation. Dr Mark Hassall joined our Board

as Junior Ophthalmologist Director at the 2019

AGM and we welcomed back to Sight For All, Ms

Lee-Anne Beswick as our Bookkeeper. Offering

me great assistance this year, has been our

volunteer Board Minute Secretary, Mrs

Emma Williamson.

Lastly, I offer my most sincere thanks to our

Visionaries, Vision 1000 Members, supporters,

sponsors and donors for your ongoing

generosity. I thank those of you who reached

out to us, concerned with how Sight For All

was managing over this period. Your kindness

and genuine support in helping us achieve

our Vision of a world where everyone can see is

overwhelming and drives us every day.

AUSTRALIAN OF

THE YEAR 2020

DR JAMES MUECKE AM

to the Australian public. Dr Muecke

worked tirelessly to deliver keynote

speeches, podcast and TV interviews and

presentations to more than 100 businesses,

community groups and institutes. The swift

shift to online presentations, coupled with

the incredibly relevant topics of Dr Muecke’s

presentations made them even more

poignant at a time when the nation looked

to build resilience.

On 25th January 2020, Sight For All’s

esteemed Chairman and co-founder,

Dr James Muecke AM, was named 2020

Australian of the Year. Honoured for his

decades-long work in fighting blindness in

Australia and abroad, Dr Muecke received

the award at a ceremony held in Canberra

by the National Australia Day Council.

Since then, Dr Muecke has used his platform

as 2020 Australian of the Year to advocate

for measures to tackle diabetes, a disease

affecting one in ten Australians. As a doctor

and ophthalmologist, Dr Muecke has

increased awareness about diabetes and the

many and highly preventable complications

of the disease. One of these complications

is diabetic retinopathy, or blindness caused

by diabetes, which is the leading cause of

blindness among working-age Australians.

2020 marked not only the 60th Anniversary

of the Australian of the Year Awards,

but was deemed an ‘auspicious year for

sight’, so it was no surprise that the award

announcement shone a light on Sight For

All. Dr Muecke’s 2020 Australian of the Year

award has undoubtly provided a platform

for Sight For All to share our work with new

audiences and supporters.

We congratulate Dr Muecke on his welldeserved

award and thank him for his

continued passion, enthusiasm and

ingenuity in fighting blindness in Australia

and abroad.

“Dr Muecke’s unwavering commitment

to create positive change in the world is

inspiring. Within our organisation, he drives

change through his vision, innovative ideas

and passion for a world where everyone

can see. We are so proud of Dr Muecke’s

achievement in being awarded Australian

of the Year 2020 in recognition of his tireless

work in blindness prevention.”

YOUTH

AMBASSADOR

CHRIS PENNINGTON

In 2017, Sight For All appointed our inaugural

Youth Ambassador, Chris Pennington.

Chris brought to the role his passion for

nature, adventure and photography as well

as a strong desire to make a difference to

children around the world. In particular as

a commercial photographer, Chris felt that

without his sight, he would have been denied

the beauty around him and the career path

he had chosen.

An avid cycler, Chris developed his Youth

Ambassadorship platform to raise funds and

awareness to childhood blinding conditions.

His goal was to ride a single speed bicycle from

the most western to most eastern points of

Australia, to raise funds to support childhood

blindness projects in developing countries.

The solo journey from Perth to Melbourne

took approximately 50 days and covered a

distance of 5,035km.

It was an enormous goal, but Chris was

motivated by the alarming statistics of the 1.4

million children globally who are blind. For

those children in developing countries the

impact of their blindness, often avoidable,

is unimaginable. These children often miss

out on an education and can become

trapped in a cycle of poverty that ultimately

contributes to wider economic issues within

their community.

Chris’ ride was entitled ‘One Gear, One Long

Ride’. He commenced his journey on 9 th

August 2019 in Perth and completed the

ride on 5 th October 2019 at St Kilda Pier in

Victoria. ‘One Gear, One Long Ride’, raised an

impressive $9,202.

Chris’ supporters included people he met

along the way and those who donated

essential assets, including his single speed

bike that he named Matilda! We thank the

businesses, individuals, along with Chris’

family and friends, who supported his journey

across Australia, and those who supported his

fundraising activities, including a quiz night

and the Dinner in the Dark event.

We were inspired by Chris’ determination,

energy and passion during his two-year

appointment as Sight For All’s Youth

Ambassador. Chris donated an incredible

amount of time in planning and executing

the challenging ride. Thank you, Chris for

helping raise awareness of our shared fight

against blindness.

COVID-19 RESPONSE

Sight For All was able to adapt and respond

quickly to the worldwide pandemic, COVID-19.

As a small team in Adelaide, plus Country

Officers in Myanmar and Cambodia, Sight

For All staff made swift arrangements to

ensure representatives’ safety, adapt projects

and begin working from home. The Board of

Directors were highly engaged working with

our Executive Officer to assess risks, ensure

safety and monitor finances.

An immense amount of support was

provided by the Australian Council for

International Development (ACFID) who

commenced weekly Heads of Agency

virtual meetings. Similarly, the Australian

Government through the Australian NGO

Cooperation Program (ANCP) worked closely

with accredited organisations to ensure that

support in response to COVID-19 could be

provided in-country quickly.

Our projects undertaken with funding from

the Australian Government’s Australian NGO

Cooperation Program (ANCP), were able to

be pivoted quickly to support our partners in

Myanmar and Cambodia. In Myanmar, this

involved the provision of 180 perspex shields

fitted to slit lamps and ophthalmic lasers and

700 face masks provided to eye hospitals and

departments throughout Myanmar.

Coordinated by our

Myanmar Country Officer

Dr Ye Win, this personal

protective equipment

was delivered and fitted,

ensuring the safety of eye

health workers and patients.

The COVID-19 Webinar on 7 May was

attended by 40 ophthalmologists,

eye health workers, refractionists and

hospital directors from 6 countries

(Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam, Bangladesh,

India and Australia).

The webinar was hosted by Sight For All’s

Cornea Lead Visionary, Prof Gerard Sutton

and Hong Kong based ophthalmologist, Dr

Kenneth Li. Participants were very receptive

to the information shared and found the

webinar highly informative.

A COVID-19 specific website was developed

and launched in early May. The website

(http://covid19.sightforall.org/) was built by

Sight For All Marketing Manager Neeta Bhise

and website developer Richard Wallace, with

content coordinated by Dr Cesar Carrillo and

Dr Mark Hassall. The website was launched

via communication to Visionaries and

partners and continues to be updated on a

regular basis.

The inability for international travel meant our

projects could not continue to be undertaken

via Visionaries travelling to teach in- country.

This presented a challenge and enormous

change to our method of operations.

COVID-19 RESPONSE

Continued...

For many years, we have been keen to

implement online learning to support our incountry

teaching. COVID-19 presented us with

the impetus to do that. Dr Cesar Carrillo, Dr Ye

Win, Mr Sith Sam Ath and our Lead Visionaries

have developed monthly tutorials and case

presentations for the ophthalmic sub-specialty

areas of Glaucoma, Neuro-Ophthalmology,

Paediatric Ophthalmology, Retina and

Oculoplastics.

While the tutorials are conducted for

specific Fellows, the attendance by other

ophthalmologists from different countries,

demonstrates our colleagues’ thirst for

knowledge. In addition to the teaching

provided, the tutorials are developing

connections between doctors from different

countries, connections that will last a

lifetime. Due to their success, these tutorials

will continue to be embedded as part of

Fellowship Projects well into the future.

Embracing virtual communication, Sight For

All hosted our first Online Ophthalmology

Online Congress in early June. The Congress

had a focus on paediatric ophthalmology and

included two x2-hourly sessions. Each session

consisted of 8 presentations and were attended

by 95 and 86 participants respectively - from

6 countries. Our Myanmar colleagues and

Country Officer hosted the Congress, which

was driven by Paediatric Ophthalmology Lead

Visionary Dr Kimberley Tan.

The philosophy behind Fellowship Projects is

that the trained Fellows go on to become the

teachers, training their own Fellows. Through

Sight For All undertaking Fellowship Projects

for over 10 years, this is now in practice in

a number of our partner countries. In the

COVID-19 environment where international

travel is not possible, we have coordinated

local projects in partner countries of Myanmar

and Cambodia for the new financial year.

PROJECT

REPORT

At Sight For All we are mindful of the great

suffering that the coronavirus pandemic

has caused in Australia, our neighbouring

Southeast Asian regions, and worldwide.

Sight For All adapted to the profound

changes that we all faced this year, and these

rapidly changing circumstances in some

respects played to Sight For All’s strengths:

our team, expertise, and agility. Sight For

All’s team comprises passionate individuals

at the level of the Board, Executive Officer,

staff, and our wonderful Visionaries. More

than 120 Visionaries (world-class eye doctors,

optometrists and other eye health care

workers) rallied to the challenges of 2020

and were able to pivot program delivery to

maintain powerful and relevant impact. By

April 2020 it was apparent that Sight For All’s

planned in-country activities would not be

possible and that new programs would need

to be developed.

In liaison with our Lead Visionaries, Sight For

All developed an online teaching program.

The program involves monthly tutorials and

case presentations delivered online. Each

monthly tutorial is hosted by a different

Visionary from a specific sub-specialty and

covers a component of the curriculum.

In addition, we developed COVID-Safe

education programs for our ophthalmic

colleagues in partner countries.

Projects not requiring travel were amplified.

Data analyses of the Vientiane Eye Survey

were completed and the first manuscript on

the prevalence of glaucoma was submitted

for publication (currently under peer review

at the British Journal of Ophthalmology).

Additional scientific papers on the

prevalence and causes of blindness are in

preparation by our doctoral student and

scientific research team.

In August we submitted our project

plans to DFAT for two new projects being

conducted over 2020-22. The first project

is our ‘Awareness and Early Detection of

Childhood Blindness Conditions in Myanmar

Project’, involving the education of frontline

healthcare workers to correctly identify eye

conditions in children and make appropriate

referrals to eye specialists. Based in Yangon

and Mandalay Regions, the project includes

public awareness, with the overall aim of

improving patient outcomes and saving lives.

The second project is our ‘Cambodia

Childhood Blindness Initiative’, training

two paediatric ophthalmologists at Preah

Ang Duong (PAD) and Calmette Hospitals

in Phnom Penh. In addition, and with the

support of a private donor, we are equipping

a new children’s eye unit at PAD Hospital. The

training of these two Fellows, Dr Namgech

and Dr Sreylin, is commencing in-country

with teaching and guidance provided by

Khmer Soviet Friendship Hospital Paediatric

Ophthalmologists trained by Sight For All,

Dr Kheng and Dr Soleaphy.

I am representing Sight For All with the

Vision Loss Expert Group (VLEG). This is an

international group of ophthalmologists and

optometrists with experience in ophthalmic

epidemiology. VLEG provides global

technical leadership in the development and

improvement of epidemiological estimates

for blindness and vision impairment. This

year, the VLEG produced updated estimates

of the global prevalence of visual impairment

and its causes, which are currently under

peer review and targeted for publication in

Lancet Global Health.

Diabetic Retinopathy is the most common

complication of diabetes, and in working age

Australians, it is the leading cause of blindness,

with a total indirect annual cost to Australia of

over $2 billion.

From March to April 2020, Sight For All ran a

In-Country Collaborative Fellowships

Sustainability is a cornerstone of every Sight For All project. Crucial to this is the strength of

relationships with in-country partners, to enable the graduate Fellows to become teachers

themselves, as they share knowledge and skills learnt with their colleagues in-country. The

transition from student to teacher is evident in Myanmar, as a number of Sight For Alltrained

specialists are conducting their own Fellowships. This irrefutably demonstrates the

sustainability of Sight For All’s approach to leave a lasting impact in partner communities.

Current In-Country Collaborative Fellowships are:

• Oculoplastics Fellow Dr Myo Min Win under the supervision of Dr Khine Su,

Yangon Eye Hospital.

• Paediatric Ophthalmology Fellows Dr Ni Ni Win and Dr Kyawt Kyawt Nain, under the

supervision of A/Prof Than Htun Aung, Yangon Eye Hospital.

MARKETING

REPORT

The past 12 months provided unique

opportunities to expand our fundraising

activities and explore new ways to reach our

supporters.

2019 celebrated our 10th birthday and

the occasion created a moment in time

to commemorate our achievements and

share our future plans. 2020 was earmarked

as the ‘auspicious year for sight’ and our

fundraising campaigns were planned with

equal ambition. COVID-19 unfortunately

resulted in the postponement of many of

our 2020 events, though our marketing and

fundraising activities continued.

World Sight Day 2019 was a highlight of our

marketing calendar. This international day of

awareness fell on the 10th of October (10.10)

and the alignment with our milestone year

formulated the basis of our World Sight Day

campaign, appropriately named the ‘Power

of 10’. This was the first time Sight For All

ran a matched-giving campaign, whereby

generous sponsors, including Nova Systems,

agreed to match public donations.

The fundraising period was launched via an

Installation by surrealist artist Andrew Baines

on Henley Beach, with 10 powerful South

Australians participating in the awareness

campaign. The ’Power of 10’ raised more than

$39,000, surpassing our expectations and

confirming the strategic approach of

the campaign.

The 4th annual Golf For Sight event held

in October 2019 at Kooyonga Golf Club was

another highlight in our events calendar,

and again generated impressive donations.

We were also pleased to host One Night For

Sight in Sydney in late 2019, which also raised

significant funds.

Bolstered by the announcement of our

Chairman Dr James Muecke AM as the

2020 Australian of the Year, we ran our

first ever simultaneous, multi-city event on

20th February 2020 (20.02.2020). Films For

Sight fundraising events were held in Perth,

Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne and these

events demonstrated the wide reaching

strength of our Visionaries and supporters.

These are but a few of the highlights that

our small, yet dedicated team have delivered

over the 2019/2020 financial year. Though

our marketing, events and fundraising

capacity was impacted by the devastating

domestic bushfires and the global

pandemics, I couldn’t be more proud of the

flexibility, commitment and persistence

of the Marketing Committee and Events

Committee respectively. With a number of

our cornerstone events rescheduled to 2021

dates, I look forward to what the next 12

months will bring.

WORLD SIGHT

DAY 2019

World Sight Day is an annual day of awareness, to focus global attention

on vision impairment and blindness. It is held on the second Thursday in

October each year and in 2019, it fell on Thursday 10th October.

In Sight For All’s 10th year, we developed a

campaign entitled ‘Power of Ten’, an initiative

designed to motivate and celebrate the

collective power of donations from corporate

and individual patrons. With a marketing

plan that spanned much of October,

reaching a targeted audience in Australia’s

major cities, the campaign presented

a compelling opportunity for corporate

partners and individual donors alike.

During the campaign period, in our 10th year

of operation, our key message aligned with

the Power of Ten, where we asked our target

audience to donate by giving $10 more, 10%

more or even share information with 10

more people.

We launched the Power of Ten on 1st

October, with an installation at Henley Beach

with Adelaide-based surrealist artist, Andrew

Baines. With the support of ten powerful

South Australians, the installation expressed

how blindness can affect any individual, in

any situation, at any age.

they cannot see. I hope my paintings can

deliver not only a powerful message, but also

an enriching experience for the participants.”

Sight For All was thrilled to have so many

prominent supporters on board, who

generously donated their time to support

the campaign.

Following this installation and until 10th

October, we took the Power of Ten to the

next level by commencing the ‘matched

giving’ component of the campaign. This

involved corporate dollars being matched to

public donations over a ten-day period. The

campaign raised $39,465,

Our deepest thanks to our supporters,

Ambassadors and Campaign Sponsor Nova

Systems, as well as Ellex, Device Technologies,

Inservio, ScanOptics and The Michael and

Joan Tallis Endowment for their support of

the Power of Ten.

Our participants included His Excellency

the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC Governor

of South Australia, film director Scott Hicks,

ex-footballer and artist Gavin Wanganeen,

media personality Mark Soderstrom, singer

Rachel Leahcar and Campaign Sponsor

Nova Systems Chairman, Jim Whalley. The

participants, dressed in black, gathered at

Henley Beach and were blindfolded before

being led to their seats to be photographed

at the water’s edge. After images were

captured, Andrew painted the subjects,

adding his own signature surrealist style to

the artwork.

“As someone involved in the visual arts, it’s

hard to imagine a world where I cannot see.

This installation aims to highlight what a

privilege sight is,” Andrew Baines said. “The

creation of this piece will take our subjects out

of their comfort zone and into a world where

TREASURER’S

REPORT

I am pleased to present the Treasurer’s Report for

the year ended 30 June 2020.

Overview

Sight For All Limited achieved a comprehensive

excess for the financial year of $5,846 (2019:

$90,338 excess). Although significantly

lower than last year, it was an excellent result

considering the impact of the Covid-19

pandemic on our fundraising events.

The net result was after Government provided

Covid-19 related financial assistance of $56,180.

Revenue of $863,828 was significantly lower

than in 2019 ($1,340,000). As stated above, the

impact of Covid-19 was to reduce event income,

as shown below:

• Fundraising revenue of $135,026 (2019:

$535,307)

• Dept of Foreign Affairs and Trade $182,100

(2019: $182,702)

• Net donations and fundraising revenue

$230,506 (2019: $305,602)

As a result of reductions in income, there

was a fall in funding of International Aid and

Development Programs of $752,663 compared

with $1,221,277 in 2019. This in part is related to

the inability to travel to countries in which we

provide assistance.

However, from March 2020 Sight For All

developed a number of aid projects that are able

to be implemented remotely, without the need

for travel. It is anticipated that these projects will

continue into the future and will continue after

travel resumes which is expected in the 2022

financial year.

Equity

The balance of total equity as at 30 June 2020

was $366,665, which is an increase of $5,846

from the previous year (2019: $360,819).

Value of Professional Volunteer Services

Although not brought to account in the

Statement of Comprehensive Income, this year

we have recognised as a Note to the Accounts

(Note 10) the value of professional volunteer

services specific to international aid and

development programs. This is valued at $82,051

for the year ended 30 June 2020.

Disclosure Notes

For the year ended 30 June 2020, the Fund has

prepared general purpose financial statements

in accordance with Australian Accounting

Standards and with the requirements of

the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits

Commission Act 2012. Last year the Fund

prepared special purpose financial statements.

As a result of this change there are extra

disclosure notes which are summarised in Notes

2, 5, 7, 8, 15 and 16 to the accounts.

PHIL JAQUILLARD

Cash

Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the

financial year were a total of $774,369. Of this

total, $392,083 is allocated for specific future

projects as per Note 9(a) of the accounts.
