One hundred loaves of bread for sight-restoring eye surgery | Andrew Bastawrous | TEDxThessaloniki
When funds for their eye health clinics started getting low, Drs. Andrew and Madeleine Bastawrous decided they needed to find a sustainable way to keep the clinics going — even without them around. Madeline’s homemade breads and baked goods had become a hit with patients and medical workers alike, so the pair decided they’d do something a little out of the ordinary for two doctors — open up a bakery, whose profits go to paying for sight-restoring operations.
