285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide, 90% of which live in developing countries.
How You Can Help?
80% of all visual impairment can be avoided or cured.
BCT is committed to supporting the establishment of medical clinics and mobile medical and eye camps throughout the World. Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness worldwide, and together, we can fight to make such preventable conditions a thing of the past.
We have a well established history of holding cataract screenings and surgeries to help people from the very young to the more elderly regain their sight. This year alone we have held more than 20 eye camps in various locations and treated over 15,000 people with treatments as simple as corrective glasses through to complex surgeries.
