It’s estimated there are 328,000 blind people in Kenya, with another 750,000 visually impaired. Cataract is the largest cause of avoidable blindness in the country, making up 43 per cent of all cases of blindness.
The Fred Hollows Foundation is working with the Government of Kenya to improve health services. Our focus is on the rural areas where 80 per cent of the population live and where access to health services is extremely limited due to finite resources and financial allocation for eye health.KEY RESPONSIBILITIES
