How we help
Prevention and Cure
4 in 5 people in the world who are blind suffer from eye conditions which are either preventable or treatable. Our eye centre helps to prevent and reverse these causes of blindness. By helping people to see, quality of daily living can drastically improve, not only for them but also for their families and the wider community.
Helping the Blind
We are committed to helping those with irreversible blindness to live with their disability. Being blind is difficult, but being blind in a developing country is infinitely harder. Through rehabilitation, we seek to empower the blind to live as independently as possible. We act as advocates for the blind in society.
Training and Education
We seek to provide eye education to the community: Many who are blind from cataracts, for example, simply do not know that they can be cured through an operation. We currently have four trained support staff working alongside our Medical Director, Henri. Our dream is for Henri to pass on the necessary surgical skills to others in the future.
