Restoring Sight, Transforming Lives

Country: Philippines
Category: Saving sight

4.3 million people in the Philippines live with visual impairment. Our important programme prevented blindness and visual impairment by:

  • providing cataract surgery and other treatments for eye conditions in both adults and children
  • training health workers
  • improving child eye health services
  • advocating at government level for eye health to be incorporated in the overall health service.

This programme was supported by Seeing is Believing, a collaboration between Standard Chartered and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB).
