We're helping improve access to affordable eye-care in Sichuan, China, which has particularly high levels of blindness.
As a nation, China accounts for 17 per cent of the world’s blindness.
How Seeing is Believing is making a difference
Seeing is Believing is providing US$1 million of funding, towards a project that will help nine local hospitals increase their services. Thanks to this project, cataract surgeries in the region have already increased by 10 per cent, helping children like Zhang Lun to see again.
The project will also develop the training capacity at the West China hospital in Chengdu, so that the region has the means to continue to develop eye-care expertise in the future.
We're not stopping there
The project will continue until 2015, aiming to reach over 1.3 million people in Sichuan through screening, treatment and health education.
Our community programmes
Our programmes aim to address some of the most pressing challenges facing our communities.
We contribute much more than profits. Through our business, we can be a force for good.
Restoring sight in Dhaka
Like almost 30% of people living in the slums of Dhaka, Jainab and Abal can't afford eye-care.
