Saving Sight in Papua New Guinea

$20 donated
Given by 1 generous donor in one year

Help restore sight to the 240,000 people in Papua New Guinea with no or poor vision.


In 2010 we have planned nine outreach visits across Madang Province for 2010. The area covers 29,000 square kms. There are only 9 eye doctors in PNG (1 per 900,000 people).

About us

The Fred Hollows Foundation carries on the work of a legendary New Zealander, the late Professor Fred Hollows. Fred was an internationally acclaimed eye surgeon and social justice activist who championed the right of all people to high quality and affordable eye care. The Fred Hollows Foundation shares Fred’s vision of a world where no one is needlessly blind, and works to end avoidable blindness in 30 developing countries across Asia, Africa and the Pacific.

The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ works in the Pacific Islands, Papua New Guinea and Timor-Leste where four out of five people who are blind don’t need to be; their condition is preventable or treatable. We restore sight to the needlessly blind and train local eye health specialists to provide eye care services in their own communities.
