Preventing blindness

Through community volunteers in Vietnam, we are able to coordinate eye exams and necessary surgeries to prevent blindness. We financially funding the transportations, examinations and operations for people who need them.  Post surgeries care also available for those in need.

Cataract is the world’s leading cause of blindness with around 18 million people blind as a result. Yet straightforward surgery can restore sight to someone who thought they might never see again. It’s a truly life-changing operation.
