Eye sight is a privilege, perhaps many of us take for granted. Every 5 seconds one person in the world goes blind. There are 285 million visually impaired people in the world.
More than 90% of the world's visually impaired people live in low income countries and age-related causes of visual impairment are on the rise because of uncontrolled diabetes.
Al-Shifa Trust is a not-for-profit organization who has treated over a half a million patients, at their three eye hospitals over the last twenty years.
They provide free treatment to 70% of their patients. This means 350,000 people have received free treatment since their inception.
