A $25 donation can provide the material cost of one sight-restoring surgery
Globally, more than 43 million people are blind. Ninety percent of these people live in low- and middle-income communities where access to eye care is limited and the challenges for those who can’t see are severe.
But there is hope – 80% of this burden is treatable or preventable.
HCP Cureblindness is working to eradicate avoidable blindness in under-resourced areas of the world by helping people retain and regain their sight.
We focus on building local capacity, ensuring quality infrastructure and equipment are available, enabling quality patient care and aiding effective prevention. This action-based approach builds local leadership, empowers key actors, and develops sustainable practices from the ground up.Learn More About Our Work
