Vision Aid Overseas is a charity dedicated to fighting poverty by transforming access to eye care and spectacles in developing countries. 670 million people (nearly 10% of the world’s population) are disadvantaged because they don’t have access to eye care and spectacles.
Poor eye sight causes poverty by keeping children out of school, stopping mothers and fathers from working and lowering the incomes of individuals and families.
Vision Aid Overseas works with volunteer optical professionals to deliver life-transforming services in six countries in Africa. We share skills and take direct action to reach people living in poor and marginalised communities.
