Book Review by a  Parishioner : 

I have recently enjoyed this book which I borrowed from the Church Library at     Wai-iti Road.

The Barefoot Surgeon

         By Ali  Gripper

It is the inspirational story of Dr Sanduk Ruit, an eye surgeon giving hope and sight to the world’s poorest and most isolated people.

As a 7 year old Sanduk was taken by his father from his isolated Nepalese Village to a boarding school in Darjeeling.  His parents were very poor, but their son showed a tenacity and intelligence that his father was determined would not be wasted.

He went on to become one of the most respected ophthalmologists in the world,  performing many operations (sometimes as many as 600 in a week) and training  surgeons from many countries.

He chose to defy the worlds medical establishment and the lure of riches to make the world a better place
