What we do

The Fred Hollows Foundation has a very clear goal: we’re putting an end to avoidable blindness. When this day comes, people in developing countries will get the same quality eye care the rest of the world takes for granted – and we won’t stop until this is done.

Ending avoidable blindness

Every time we restore someone’s sight, it also brings back their independence, ability to work, or get an education. Ending avoidable blindness through medication, surgery, education, prevention and training is a part of helping people out of poverty, which we see proof of everyday.

We’re on the ground training, advocating, educating, treating and rebuilding facilities in more than 25 countries around the world. We work with our partners and local communities towards our common goal to end avoidable blindness.

More than 20 million women in the world are blind and a further 120 million women are visually impaired.

There is a gender gap present in almost every aspect of women's lives. Access to education, political representation, employment opportunities, wage disparity and even physical safety are areas where women across the world are frequently at a disadvantage.
