Debra Winger Wants Indians Abroad To Help Visually Impaired

Debra Winger, the Hollywood actress who is promoting eye care will be approaching Indians living abroad to help the visually impaired people living in India. Even though the country has a very high number// of visually impaired people, 80% of them can be cured, according to Debra Winger.

Winger, who at the age of 17 met with an accident that left her temporarily blind, but she came out of it, is today a global ambassador for Sight Savers International.

‘The purpose of my trip is not to promote but to learn because I have not been to India before,’ said the actress who starred in such films as ‘An Officer And A Gentleman’ and ‘Terms Of Endearment’. ‘India is important because of the partnership between Sight Savers International and Venu Eye Institute and Research Centre (VEIRC) and for their work,’ she added.
