How YOUR support will change lives:
The aim of The Fred Hollows foundation is to build capacity at
all levels, from village health centres to regional hospitals and
national ophthalmological networks.
Your fundraising efforts will go towards training local doctors
and health workers, building and upgrading facilities, and
providing equipment in order to achieve long-term sustainable eye
Like Fred, they believe in working through partnerships with
individuals, communities and governments and speaking out when they
see a need.
One of their key roles is advocacy in support of their vision of
a world where no one is needlessly blind.
The Fred Hollows Foundation has been a driving force in the
development and implementation of blindness prevention programs in
some of the poorest and most isolated regions of the world.
Today, they operate programs in over 19 countries throughout
Africa, South Asia and South East Asia, and work extensively with
remote Indigenous communities in Australia.
