Fred believed in giving a hand up, not a hand out, and we train local eye health workers to restore sight in their own communities. Every year Foundation-trained eye health workers perform thousands of sight-restoring surgeries at our clinics and through our surgical outreach program.
Globally, The Fred Hollows Foundation has performed nearly one million sight-restoring operations in the last five years alone.
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.
