BENEFITING: MERCY SHIPS
Did you know…
• Approximately 90% of the world’s visually impaired live in developing countries
• 80% of all visual problems and impairment can be prevented, treated or cured
• Being blind in developing countries often means being considered an outcast
• most blind children do not survive past the age of five.
Blindness and visual disability have become major public health issues around the world, and have far-reaching implications that impact all areas of life. But they don’t have to.
