In an opinion piece in the NZ Herald this morning, Angela Griffen reflects on Fred Hollows’ final months. Angela was with Lion Nathan, who generously worked pro bono with Fred at the end of his life, during the formation of The Foundation. She speaks about travelling with his large family which included very young twins and, after Fred’s passing, making the journey to Nepal and witnessing first-hand the legacy Fred had left there – the miracle of restoring sight.
Read her own words on his final interview with Paul Holmes, and Fred's inimitable mix of humour and brutal honesty.
"“The simplicity of the messaging is compelling - giving back sight gives people back the freedom to run their own lives.”- Angela Griffen
