A message from Bruno
Last couple of hours...
So, here we are... just a few more hours left in this fantastic country. The thought of leaving is very emotional, I am happy to be going home, but at the same time very sad to be going.
A very difficult emotion to try and comprehend.
The opportunity that OneSight has offered to us is truly amazing. We are given the chance to touch and impact a community positively, by providing the gift of sight, but what really happens is that the community reaches out and touches us.
Through this contact we are all confronted with our own preconceptions and ideas. And after two weeks of this loving embrace, we come out a better person, and it is us who are given the gift of sight, the ability to see through someone else's eyes, and comprehend the splendor that is China.
All the beautiful people we have met here has touched my life in some small way, and some left a big mark on my life.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking a bunch of strangers and showing us such great hospitality, and personally I know that because of you China will always have a very special place in my heart. I wish the distance between NZ and China was smaller, and easier to travel. One day, hopefully, I will be able to repay your hospitality in turn by hosting you in the place I call home, Auckland NZ.
Until that day, may the sun shine on you always
