IN THE DARK
Over 12 million people in Africa are blind. In many African countries, one in every four children lose their site by the time they are five years old.
Close to fifty percent of all blind patients in Africa suffer from cataract disease; an easily curable and avoidable form of blindness.
In Ethiopia, one doctor is responsible for approximately 40,000 people. Millions of people die without ever seeing a doctor in their lifetime.
