Our founder, Fred Hollows, was an internationally renowned eye surgeon. He worked tirelessly to end avoidable blindness around the world. While it didn't happen in his time, it will in ours.
Some call us a charity, but we're actually a development organisation working in more than 25 countries. We help train and empower local doctors, nurses and health workers so we can leave a lasting difference. The work we do has a very clear purpose: to make sure everyone, whether they're rich or poor, has access to high quality, affordable eye care.
