Our Impact In Nigeria

At a glance [2019]

Approximately 5 million people in Nigeria suffer from visual impairment, over 80% of which are preventable, and a significant portion remains unaddressed because of poverty. During our first relief mission in 2021, we partnered with Eye Foundation Hospital to carry out 1,266 eye examinations and restore eyesight to 550 impoverished people: 50 cataract surgeries and 500 reflective error corrections.
