Sierra Leone in West Africa is one of the world's poorest countries. It emerged from a brutal decade-long civil war in 2002 but the country still faces many challenges. Two thirds of the population live in poverty, and millions of people lack access to basic services.
More than 100,000 people across the country are blind. This, allied to one of the lowest health worker-population ratios in the world, makes it incredibly difficult to treat and prevent blindness.
We are working tirelessly to tackle the problem of preventable blindness in Sierra Leone.
