It is Eye Care for Africa’s goal to work with orphanages to provide eye care to children in Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Kenya.

Main image

Eye Care for Africa was founded in 2017 by Hawkes Bay based Optometrist Niall McCormack. It was formed to provide real eye care to some of the most marginalised groups in the countries of Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Kenya. It all began when Niall accepted an invitation to provide eye care to an orphanage in Uganda. Whilst there it became very apparent of the dire level of need that existed.

“I was astonished at the level of the need there. I saw children with conditions such as cataract whose eyesight was in desperate need of appropriate attention.”

This experience motivated Niall to make a difference and upon his return to New Zealand ‘Eye Care for Africa’ was created. The charity is now an official charity registered with the NZ Charities Commission.

Use of funds

We are looking to push things to the next level, but to fund this project we need your help. Any donations will be used to provide eye examinations, glasses and equipment for the needy in these countries. We also hope to provide an opportunity for local Hawkes Bay school children to experience our work.
