The 2010 World Cup has come and gone in a flurry of pride and heart-aching disappointment. The nation pulled together behind our boys in boots and the country just about came to a standstill on Bafana’s match days. But, for a small group of people, those with albinism the event went by unmarked. These people, without exception, suffer from poor eyesight and blinding sensitivity to bright light, making it impossible for those who did not have spectacles and sunnies to watch the action on TV or attend live matches. We at Lathi Tha’ Eyecare decided that this is unacceptable.
Ms. Nosinda Ndiwa joined Lathi Tha’ Eyecare Govan Mbeki Avenue in Port Elizabeth in 2008. She has strong selling skills and flies the Lathi Tha’ Eyecare flag with her excellent customer service as she recently displayed by handling an irate customer when we did our “mystery caller” exercise for all our stores. At Lathi Tha’ Eyecare we pride ourselves on our commitment to always deliver quality products with an extra-ordinary service, because our clients are important to us.
Congratulations to Ms. Ndiwa for her ready smile, enthusiasm and commitment to always go the extra mile, a perfect example of a true beacon of light. Hope you enjoy your vouchers and spoil yourself rotten, you deserve it!!
