What We Do 

Eye for the horn of Africa is a non-profit organisation which is committed to advancing health, education and social and public welfare throughout communities in the horn of Africa. Our main focus is to reduce the burden of preventable blindness, improving the quality of life of individuals in need.

Many people in the horn of Africa blind because they don’t have access to quality or affordable eye care. It is estimated that in Africa 5.88 million people are blind and many of them don’t have to be. Eye diseases like cataract, refractive error, glaucoma, trachoma and diabetic retinopathy lead to blindness and they can be prevented or cured through early medical intervention and health care education.
