Proposed deletion of International Resources for the Improvement of Sight[edit]

Ambox warning yellow.svg

The article International Resources for the Improvement of Sight has been proposed for deletion because of the following concern:

Apparently non-notable charity. None of the independent references in the article actually mention the charity. Nothing in google except for a few charities databases, which suggest that it's Cambodian focused, rather than the international focus of the article.

While all contributions to Wikipedia are appreciated, content or articles may be deleted for any of several reasons.

You may prevent the proposed deletion by removing the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice, but please explain why in your edit summary or on the article's talk page.

Please consider improving the article to address the issues raised. Removing {{proposed deletion/dated}} will stop the proposed deletion process, but other deletion processes exist. In particular, the speedy deletion process can result in deletion without discussion, and articles for deletion allows discussion to reach consensus for deletion.

I have deleted the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice. IRIS is an organization which operates in south and south/east Asia, not only Cambodia. It's an incredibly important organization providing a vital support to some of the less fortunate living in the region. As the organization appears to suffer from a limited web presence, it is crucial that the organization continues to be listed in Wikipedia. Instead of deleting the article, I suggest that the one who added the {{proposed deletion/dated}} notice in the first place, instead spends some time to develop the article. Many thanks for your understanding. Griberg 12:25, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
