Vollie News Thursday 11th October 2018 Page 10 Grace of the Order of St. John and a member of H.M. Bodyguard of Scotland, has annually been able to forward a noble sum from that country in aid of the good work. In the central hall of the hospital hangs a picture of the great Queen given by her Majesty herself, and a handsome tablet is erected to the pious memory of one at whose initiative the hospice was established, Sir Edmund Lechmere, Chancellor of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem in England. https://www.facebook.com/stjohneyehospital/ We celebrate World Teachers Day by honouring the head of our Sir Stephen Miller School of Nursing and St John Eye Hospital stalwart Nasrallah Khalileh! Nasrallah has been head of the school since 2011 and during that time has trained over 50 ophthalmic nurses in our Jerusalem Hospital and 32 nursing assistants in our Gaza Hospital. One man is making a big difference. Nasrallah shares the following thoughts on his work: I feel proud seeing my graduate students in every corner of SJEH and across medical centres in the oPt contributing to the elimination of unnecessary and avoidable blindness. Having well trained ophthalmic nurses is part of our strategy to ensure long-lasting, sustainable, high-quality eye care in the oPt. The ultimate mission is to save sight across the country and Im proud to be part of that goal! Opportunity of a lifetime! After 20 years volunteering for St John in Australia. I arrived in Jerusalem yesterday for 3 weeks of Volunteering at the St John Eye Hospital. While I hope to gain direct insight into all the hospital does. Its a reminder that all 40 countries that have St John Ambulance contribute to this Hospitals function. But there is more we can do from a membership level. Please like and share this Fb page among your St John networks and keep up to date on the origin of our Priory! Pro utilitate hominum! Liz Coffey. https://www.facebook.com/StJohnAAOphthalmicpro gram/ Liz Coffey from St John Ambulance Australia is currently on a three week visit to Jerusalem to learn more about the work of the eye hospital. Her dream (and ours) is to create Eye Hospital Champions across St John who are dedicated to encouraging the life-changing work we do each day across the oPt. Watch this space (and follow her Australia Ophthalmic Program) for updates on her visit! https://www.facebook.com/stjohneyehospital/ https://www.facebook.com/stjohneyehospital/photos/a.598227816884475/2404023602971545/?type=3&theater https://www.facebook.com/StJohnAAOphthalmicprogram/photos/a.2121238388096262/2127160627504038/?type=3&theater https://www.facebook.com/StJohnAAOphthalmicprogram/ https://www.facebook.com/StJohnAAOphthalmicprogram/
