In Indonesia, over 4 million people are needlessly blind.
Around 65% of these people cannot access specialist medical treatment.
JFF’s vision is to help as many of these people as they can.
With support, someone who could easily be treated will have their sight restored.
What they do:
JFF’s humanitarian projects are based in Bali, Indonesia, and include Sight Restoration and Blindness Prevention, Children’s Corrective Surgery, Prosthetic Eyes and Technology Transfer. The programs target people who are economically disadvantaged and all services are provided free of charge.
Celebrating good work:
The John Fawcett Foundation honoured International Women’s Day in 2023 with a special female-only eye clinic at their Headquarters in Bali on Wednesday 8 March, with a follow-up cataract operating session on Friday 10 March, for women identified as blind with cataracts.
