Cataract Free Africa ®
Cataract Free Africa ® is the first initiative that we are extremely passionate about. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 39 million people worldwide are blind and cataracts remain the leading cause of blindness in low and middle incomes countries. Senile cataract is a non-preventable disease of aging, having its biggest impact in the over-60 age group. As Cataract Free Africa ® , we have made it our priority to ensure that Africa is cataract free. Our elderly play an integral role in society and removing cataracts is our way of giving back to members of our communities who have contributed both selflessly and immeasurably to many. Over the last xx years, we have performed 15,000 successful >cataract removal procedures across Zimbabwe for men and women between the ages of 60 – 90. With the undeniable success of our model in Zimbabwe, we will be scaling our work and efforts to ensure the continent is cataract free by 2030 with the support of strategic partners in each zone and region.
