What We Do

Ending Avoidable Blindness

Our work is inspired by the late Professor Fred Hollows, who had a vision of a world where no one is needlessly blind. Fred Hollows was an internationally renowned eye surgeon and humanitarian who worked tirelessly to end avoidable blindness.

Coastrekkers like you help support The Fred Hollows Foundation’s work in over 25 countries around the world.

Over 20 million women in the world are blind and a further 120 million women are visually impaired. Sadly, 4 out of 5 don’t need to be!

Blindness in women can be especially devastating - if she can’t see, then she can’t work and can’t feed her children. Restoring sight to a woman is life changing and affects her entire family and community. She can go to work again and her children can go to school again (instead of having to look after her).

Click here to see the difference your fundraising can have to a women like Thol in Cambodia.

Giving these women a second chance at life by restoring their sight for as little as $25 is only possible with the help of people like you, our invaluable Coastrekkers, and your supporters.

Thank you for keeping Fred’s dream alive.
