Who care’s? Eye care!
The Eye Care Foundation helps prevent and cure avoidable blindness and vision impairment in developing countries. Worldwide there are 253 million people with visual disabilities. 36 million of these people are blind, 217 million are visually impaired. A massive 89% of people with visual disabilities are living in developing countries. The impact of blindness is particularly acute for vulnerable populations in developing countries, and leads to major economic and social problems. Blind people are often no longer able to support themselves, and become fully dependent on family members and friends for their livelihood. Fortunately, in 75% of the cases the visual disability can be corrected or cured. With relatively simple, low-cost solutions, like a cataract surgery or a good pair of glasses, we can end this situation. However, without the financial help of you as a donor, it is impossible for us to achieve this.
