Cesaria was one of these people we were able to help.

Blind from birth, Cesaria’s chances of surviving until her fifth birthday would have been slim. Unable to look after a blind child, Cesaria’s parents abandoned her soon after she was born. Thankfully, her grandmother Veronica stepped in to raise her instead. Veronica was the driving force in making sure Cesaria got the medical attention she needed. However, with only US$4 a day to live on, Veronica couldn’t afford the vital surgery that would give Cesaria back her sight. This is where our local partners stepped in. Burundi’s only paediatric ophthalmologist, Dr. Levi, performed Cesaria’s much-needed operation. It was just in time – the older children are, the harder it is to save their sight. For Cesaria, restoring her sight at such a young age gives her the chance to develop and experience childhood just like any other little girl.

Let’s end avoidable blindness together

Many people are blind because they don’t have access to quality and affordable eye health. Since The Foundation started 31 years ago, we’ve restored sight to more than 3 million people – often with a simple, 20 minute operation.

The world needs your generosity

The Fred Hollows Foundation delivers eye care services to people living in remote areas around the world. Your donation is very important to help us achieve our goal.  Your donation will restore sight and change lives. Thanks so much for your generosity!

Your donation changes lives

The Fred Hollows Foundation estimates that every $1 invested in ending avoidable blindness can create four times the economic benefits.

Your monthly donation will create bigger impacts:

  • A monthly donation of HKD150 can restore sight to one person each month
  • A monthly donation of HKD350 can help set up an eye screening camp in a remote area
  • A monthly donation of HKD500 can help train a specialist eye nurse

Little Cesaria has been blind since birth. She was sadly abandoned by her parents. Thanks to Dr Levi, trained by The Fred Hollows Foundation, she received sight-restoring surgery. The Fred Hollows Foundation provides eye health treatment in over 25 countries.

Why is it important to save sight?

Blindness is more than a health issue. It is also a social and economic problem.  It is especially difficult for patients living in poverty and remote areas to seek medical help. 

Some patients may not understand that eye diseases like cataract, trachoma and refractive error can be treated easily. Many patients cannot afford treatment or transport to see a doctor. 

It can also be challenging for hospitals and clinics to provide simple eye services to patients. There may not be enough experienced medical staff and facilities. 


  • Is my donation tax deductible?

    Yes! A receipt is available for donations of HKD100 or more.

  • Will I get a receipt?

    Yes! For one-off donations, we will email donation receipts immediately. Receipts for monthly donations will be mailed in April every year.

  • What will my donation be used for?

    Your donation could be used to restore someone’s sight, but it may also go towards a range of other program activities like training surgeons or eye health workers. All of the work we do aims to build capacity in developing countries to create sustainable public eye health systems so your donation will help thousands of people in their communities into the future. 

  • What methods of payment are accepted?

    We welcome the use of Visa、Mastercard、American Express and Union Pay. You can use PayPal and credit cards for one-off donations.  You can also use credit cards or direct debit for monthly donations.
