Good eyesight for everyoneEye for Zambia supports setting up an eye clinic in Zambia to make good eyesight possible for all.
When elderly people have low vision, children often stay at home to help. With a cataract surgery the eyesight can be restored and the elderly can participate again in daily life: working, raising children, setting up a business etc. The child can go (back) to school, because his (grand)parents no longer need support. This is another way to break the cycle of poverty.
The construction of an eye clinic can make qualified eye care available to all.
