Your Eye Health Matters to Us
EYE HEALTH AFRICA
The estimated global prevalence of blindness is approximately 39 million people, one in 200. Approximately 246 million people are visually impaired, with staggering implications not just on their quality of life but on the wider economy.
Eye Health Africa, was founded by Miss Primrose Magala, a British Senior Ophthalmic Nurse at Londons’ famous Moorfields Eye Hospital. She is also the author of ‘The Eye Opener ‘.
Eye Health Africa CIC is powered by health professionals passionate about delivering high quality ophthalmologic care across the continent of Africa.
The ultimate goal of Eye Health Africa is to create long term and sustainable ophthalmic institutions in Africa, to allow each country to deliver world class eye care for themselves. They do this by advocating for aid and partnership with local and international organisations. The organisation aims to share and exchange knowledge, and transfer practical skills to support the urgent need to build capacity for eye care services in Africa.
“Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality”.
– Dalai Lama
