VISION FOR ALL FOUNDATION 2022 – 2023 CHARITY
THE JOY OF REGAINING ONE’S SIGHT
We are happy to announce that the Vision for All Foundation, created by a group of Swiss ophthalmologists, has been chosen as the charity for the club year 2022 – 2023. The Vision for All Foundation was established in 2001 by Dr A Mermoud and Dr M.E. Karlen. For over 20 years the foundation has been developing humanitarian ophthalmology projects for the benefit of disadvantaged populations in Asia and Africa.
The goals of the Vision for All Foundation are:
- to create and support, in the long term, ophthalmological centers and existing structures by sending high-performance medical equipment
- to train medical and paramedical personnel on site or through internships in Switzerland
- and to promote the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of the pathologies encountered.
The foundation is continuing its humanitarian work in Africa, where the need for ophthalmic care is among the most pressing, in parallel with the achievements that are now permanent in India and Nepal. Furthermore, the importance of training in glaucoma surgery has become a priority for the foundation and it is in this context that they support numerous
internships and stays of young doctors, both in Switzerland and abroad.
