Health

Through the health program we aim to early detect people who have vision problems, through school screening and medical convoys. People are then divided between two main groups. On one hand, when a remedy is possible we refer them to our partner hospitals and clinics where operations are conducted and proper medications provided for free. When eye-glasses are prescribed we provide them as well with no charge. On the other hand, if the person is identified as blind or low vision we refer her/him to the center of excellence where we provide our early intervention, (re) habilitation,  and  education services. 

From 2004 until today we have:

Screened 18,000 students in primary education

Conducted check-ups for 8818 patient 

Provided 2001 prescription glasses
