We are happy to have received a Silver Award for our support of Optometry Giving Sight.
This money will be used to support sustainable eye care projects in underserved communities around the world, helping people who are needlessly blind or vision impaired and in urgent need of eye care. Optometry Giving Sight is committed to supporting programs focusing on training local eye care professionals so that people in need will have access to sustainable eye care from within their own community.
Optometry Giving Sight has funded 117 projects in 39 countries since 2007. These projects have helped to: provide basic eye care services to over 7.6 million people, support the establishment of 133 vision centres, train more than 14,000 eye care personnel, which includes funding support to 9 Schools or Colleges of Optometry where 782 students are currently enrolled. 383students have already graduated with the potential to see 766,000 patients.
Thank you to our wonderful patients for their giving and support of this important initiative!
