“We are creating a world free from preventable of blindness, and where people have access to affordable and sustainable eye care.”
“We work with local partners to treat preventable blindness, and ensure we set up sustainable infrastructure that inspire local teams to save sight in their communities.”
When a group of passionate doctors realised that 253 million people across the world are blind or visually impaired, and that 80% of these cases can be treated or prevented: inaction was not an option.
These doctors formed the Al Basar International Foundation and launched our first medical campaign in Pakistan, providing specialist eye centres where there previously were none.
That was in 1989. In 2005, we set up a sister organisation – Al Basar International Foundation UK – where we continue the fight against preventable sight loss in 46 countries around the world.
