Philanthropy is playing a critical role to make Oriel a reality.

In a new Moorfields Eye Charity film Moorfields patients give heartfelt testimonies about what the new centre truly means to them, including the story of paediatric patient Khamani, para athlete Chris, and Elaine who receives treatment for macular degeneration.


The new centre will benefit patients like Elaine, Chris and Khamani in the film, and people with sight loss around the world.

“I feel so honoured to have the opportunity to take part in the film. My cherished dream of a new centre is becoming a reality. I want everyone to understand how my emotional journey with sight loss has empowered me. This is down to the world class care I receive at Moorfields which has helped to save my sight. It’s very special and meaningful to send out a message of boundless hope for the future about the new eye health centre.” Elaine Manna, Moorfields patient

In partnership Moorfields Eye Charity and UCL are committed to raising over £100 million. The campaign has raised over £72.5 million in capital commitments to date.
