Choice: Seeing is believing

Bosnia war photographer Tom Stoddart has collaborated with Sight Savers International to produce a compelling photographic exhibition to launch the charity's campaign against river blindness. The display, which will tour around the country, highlights the devastating effects of river blindness on the communities of West and Central Africa. The disease, spread by the bite of the black simulim fly, leads to blindness after years of lethargy and irritation. Sight Savers aims to treat two million people in 1997.
