Two and a half billion people globally lack access to the eye care they need. Vision for a Nation is an award-winning UK charity working to change this, one country at a time. Starting with Rwanda.
In 2012, only 15% of the Rwandan population had access to local eye care services. Fast forward to today and every single person in Rwanda can benefit from local, affordable vision correction and treatment.
Vision for a Nation’s work with Rwanda’s Ministry of Health has already helped nearly one million people. The new service has been integrated into Rwanda’s universal health coverage and eye care services are now being extended to all 15,000 villages nationwide.
Vision for a Nation is aiming to take its pioneering model to other countries.
