Eradicating Curable Blindness
Our Goal is to support more than 50% of NGOs,
who are working to Eradicate Curable Blindness in India and East Arica
Until Curable Blindness is history
According to World Health Organization
About 500,000 children become blind each year, which is one child every minute.
About half of these children die within one or two years of becoming blind.
“There is no better way to thank God for your sight than by giving a helping hand to someone in the dark.”
Globally 1 out of every three people who suffer from Blindness, live in India
Restoring sight is a highly efficient and cost-effective means of reversing the devastating impact of blindness. As recognized by both the World Bank and the World Health Organization, blindness perpetuates the cycle of poverty for individuals and families. Its consequences are profound, encompassing not only the restoration of vision but also the invaluable advantages of education, gainful employment, independence, and reduced inequality, among others. Our mission is to eradicate curable blindness through the establishment of dedicated eye hospitals in India and Kenya, where we provide affordable, accessible, and sustainable eye care services.
This initiative aims to bring light and hope to those affected by curable blindness, ultimately breaking the chains of poverty and fostering a brighter future for individuals and communities.
We are creating solutions
