WHERE WE WORK
We believe in getting things done. In our mission to end avoidable blindness, we’re proud to say we now work in more than 25 countries and have restored sight to millions of people.
There’s something truly special about Africa. While its natural beauty is second to none, many countries remain poverty stricken, and Africa continues to have the greatest need for a sustainable eye care workforce.
We currently work in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Rwanda.
South Asia & Middle East
Culturally rich and geographically spectacular, the countries of South Asia are home to a fifth of the world’s population. However, a majority of the people live in rural and remote areas, making it difficult to access quality eye health services.
We currently work in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Myanmar, Nepal, Palestine, and Jordan.
Known for its rugged beauty and azure beaches, much of Southeast Asia has enjoyed a dramatic economic upturn in recent years. Despite great progress, many people are still living with avoidable blindness that’s either treatable or preventable.
We currently work in Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Laos PDR, the Philippines, and Vietnam.
With shimmering blue water and white sandy beaches, many people dream of a long holiday in Australasia and the Pacific Islands. But in many of these island nations, access to eye health services is still limited – shocking when most vision loss can be corrected overnight.
We currently work in Australia, Timor Leste, and in other Pacific Island nations.
