Neil joined the Board in 2022. He is a retired eye surgeon who was active, often together with his wife Tania and children, in inclusive eye work in the developing and developed world for nearly 30 years. During this time he has known cbm from both the inside – in the field in West Africa working for cbm for several years – and from the outside, not only as a supporter but also as an observer of cbm activities while involved with other aid organisations. He has a deep understanding and appreciation of the impact of cbm’s work.
The opportunity to be a Board member, offering, along with his Governance expertise, these experiences to help contribute to cbm, is both exciting and humbling.
