Eye Health

For over a decade, Wen Giving have successfully partnered with several causes dedicated to curing preventable blindness and restoring vision to vulnerable people in disadvantaged communities in Australia and across the world, with life-changing, positive outcomes.

Millions of people are blind simply because they live in poverty. Globally, 80% of all visual impairment is curable or preventable, but without geographic and economic access to quality eye care services, people are forced to live without their sight.

Wen Giving is committed to curing avoidable blindness by working with on-ground partners to develop training programs, build infrastructure and facilitate outreach services that provide sustainable eye health care to people in need.
