HELP PEOPLE TO SEE AGAIN AND PREVENT BLINDNESS
Organized by: Adeleke Olarewaju
EVENT DATE Apr 09, 2016
285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide: 39 million are blind and 246 have low vision. About 90% of the world's visually impaired live in low-income settings. 82% of people living with blindness are aged 50 and above. (WHO) There are 39M blind people in the world!!! But 80% of blindness could be prevented or cured. That's 31.2M people who are blind when it could be avoided. Shocked at how unfair this is? So are we. But you can help us do something about it by donating to MAGNATE EYE FOUNDATION as it moves to eliminate avoidable blindness and support people who are irreversibly blind or disabled to live independently. We are embarking on eye screening in rural areas and major cities in Nigeria HELP SOMEONE TO SEE AGAIN!!!
