Every child no matter where they are borndeserves the opportunity to live a happy, healthy and productive life. Unfortunately, both here and abroad, poverty, inability to access modern healthcare and educational inequality continue to erect barriers that stand in the way of children meeting their full potential. I applaud the efforts of Distressed Children & Infants International for their sustained commitment to improving the lives of children worldwide, including efforts to ensure that all is being done to protect and promote child vision and eye health. I was grateful to participate in DCI’s conference and look forward to following and supporting their continued efforts.
