Princess Margriet yesterday opened a symposium at the Martini Plaza in Groningen, as part of the 75th anniversary of the General Dutch Association for the Prevention of Blindness (ANVBB).

Several Dutch organisations involved in preventing blindness are attending the symposium, to bring attention to the avoidable and unnecessary sight and vision problems which can lead to blindness.

Princess Margriet opened the event as patron of VISION 2020 Netherlands, the Dutch branch of the World Health Organisation’s world-wide project to eliminate all avoidable cases of blindness by the year 2020.
