Eoin Macken shares touching photos for charity event


Eoin Macken has travelled to the Nampula province of Mozambique to witness the life-changing work the organisation carries out in one of the world’s poorest communities.

The Irish actor is currently filing the latest installment of the Resident Evil franchise in South Africa and has photographed some shocking scenes.

The Dubliner photographed families and local children in the area, a place where visual impairment isn’t just limited to older people and often affects entire families.

Eoin was keen to capture these scenes, especially Nampula’s children. An exhibition of Eoin’s emotional images will run in Powerscourt Town Centre, Dublin 2 until October 15th.

The Night Shift trip focused on the northern province of Nampula, where 1.5 million of the 5 million population, similar to that of Ireland, are living with a visual impairment.

Sightsavers’ Million Miracles appeal aims to raise €36 million over three years to provide one million life-changing, sight-restoring operations to people living with cataract in developing countries around the world.
