The Fred Hollows Foundation


The Fred Hollows Foundation

Mission Statement

The Foundation’s vision is for a world where no person is needlessly blind or vision impaired. It continues the work of the late Professor Fred Hollows, a globally-renowned eye surgeon who believed everyone should have access to high-quality affordable eye care, no matter where they live. 

Why Donate to The Fred Hollows Foundation?

Currently 43 million people around the world are blind and 1.1 billion live with some form of vision loss. About 90 per cent of those affected live in low-income and middle-income countries. If we don’t act now by 2050 it is estimated more than 61 million people will be blind because of the growing and aging population. However, we can fix the problem. More than 90 per cent of vision loss is preventable or treatable and we can address it using existing highly cost-effective interventions. Our priority is to strengthen health systems and work with communities to improve their own eye health. We do this through life-changing surgeries and treatments, training doctors and health workers, generating new ideas, and pushing for change at all levels – from local to global. By donating to The Fred Hollows Foundation you will support this sight-restoring work in more than 25 countries and help us achieve our vision of a world where no one goes needlessly blind.
