How You Can Help

About This Project

On July 4th, Vision Care launched the first "Let's Make a Brighter Africa" Vision Route Project spanning 9 countries throughout Southeast Africa in order to better understand, as well as bring attention to, the inadequate ophthalmic infrastructure in this region.  Led by a team of dedicated Vision Care doctors, we will also conduct sight-restoring surgical eye camps in 6 of these countries, namely in Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda.  

Through this intensive 2 month project, we also aim to strengthen the capacity of local hospitals and cooperative networks in order to achieve a more fully sustainable eye health environment in Africa.  

Just $120 ($10 a month) will help one adult or child to receive the life transforming cataract surgery needed to see again.
