Community Eye Hospital in Ethiopia

Himalayan Cataract Project

Ethiopia has one of the highest national burdens of blindness in the world, with an estimated 800,000 backlog of people with cataract blindness. Only 70,000 Ethiopians receive cataract surgery each year, leaving hundreds of thousands waiting for care.

Wen Giving has provided funding towards a new community eye hospital in Ethiopia to alleviate the growing backlog of needless blindness in the Amhara region, provide quality eye care to everyone who needs it and build ophthalmic capacity in Ethiopia through specialised training programs.
