How have we helped?

In 2008, Lord Mervyn Davis CBE asked Charlotte di Vita to join the Seeing is Believing committee as a board member.

21st Century Leaders helped Seeing is Believing to raise funds through the attendance of its 21st Century Leader Joseph Fiennes, to Seeing is Believing's New York Gala Dinner held on 6th Oct 2008. The Gala Dinner raised $484,000 which Standard Chartered Bank matched in funds, raising a total of $968,000.

21st Century Leaders worked with its leaders Joseph Fiennes and Minnie Driver to create auction prizes to raise funds on the night. Details are:

- US$ 8,000 through auction prize donated by Joseph Fiennes

About Seeing is Believing

Seeing is Believing is a global initiative to help tackle avoidable blindness.
We are a collaboration between Standard Chartered Bank and the International Agency for Prevention of Blindness (IAPB).

We raise money to prevent and treat avoidable blindness. Every dollar raised is matched by Standard Chartered Bank – doubling our impact on the ground. So far, we have raised over US$17 million and helped more than two million people regain their sight. By 2012, we aim to have raised another US$20 million to reach 32 million people through our projects.
