ABOUT THE FRED HOLLOWS FOUNDATION
The Foundation is an international development organisation working to prevent blindness and restore sight. We continue to carry on the legacy of Professor Fred Hollows, who believed every person had the right to quality eye care, no matter where they live. Over 30 years The Foundation has grown to work in more than 25 countries throughout Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and the Pacific, as well as in Australia anWe have an ambitious five-year strategic plan that aims to take us even closer to realising our vision of a world in which no person is needlessly blind or vision impaired.
The Foundation is also proud to announce that we were awarded the Employer of Choice Award (Public Sector and NFP) at the 2022 Australian HR Awards.
Today 1.1 billion people around the world are needlessly blind. If we do nothing, the next 30 years will see vision loss nearly double. To address this, The Fred Hollows Foundation is embarking on an ambitious and sector leading global fundraising Campaign, unlocking significant new resources to make a truly catalytic change in the battle against avoidable blindness around the world.
