Our Impact in 2022: Restoring Sight, Changing Lives

In 2022, your support allowed us to make a profound impact. We reached over 5,000 people in need across two countries in Africa. Through free eye exams, cataract surgeries, and providing prescription glasses, we changed lives in ways that words can hardly capture.


Dorothee’s Brighter World – One of the heartwarming moments of the year was helping 7-year-old Dorothee see our beautiful world for the first time ever. She was born with congenital bilateral cataracts and lived in darkness due to poverty until she met our team in Yaounde.

Gift’s Journey to Sight – Another joyful highlight of our year was Gift, a 45-year-old mother of five, who had been blind from double cataracts due to untreated diabetes. Thanks to the kindness of our supporters, Gift regained her sight and returned to a more fulfilling life.

Learn More About Our Impact In Developing Countries

More than 1.0 billion people in developing countries suffer from visual impairment over 70% of which are preventable or treatable but are not because of poverty. We are on a mission to change that!

We seek to establish partnerships with carefully selected local non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to restore eyesight,  deliver relief to the needy, and where feasible, connect recipients with resources to help put them on a path to self-reliance. 

Thanks to the generous donation from our founder, our very first relief mission took place in Africa within 6 months of our incorporation where we partnered with a local hospital to restore eyesight to hundreds of deserving people.

Over the next decade, we will expand our outreach to several other developing countries in Africa and other parts of the world.
