Composer dedicates piece to charity
Author: Zoe Wickens
Vision Care for Homeless People (VCHP) volunteer Awet Habtezion has dedicated her new piano composition to the charity.
Habtezion is a volunteer clinic assistant at the charity’s Aldgate clinic in London and named her composition Hope as she was so moved by what she has seen working with the charity.
She said: ‘At VCHP I have met people that once had a decent job but unemployment, relationship break up and addiction leads to homelessness and vulnerable people find it difficult to walk into traditional stores for sight tests.
'Hope is what vulnerable people need to find their way out of the darkness, and along with the work of opticians and clinic managers, volunteers and fundraisers, we can make a difference.’
