Kiwi-born Professor Fred Hollows (1929-1993) was a world-renowned eye surgeon and humanitarian who worked tirelessly to restore sight to needlessly blind people. In his time, Fred helped restore eyesight to thousands of people and now, more than 30 years later, his work lives on.
The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ strives to end avoidable blindness and vision impairment in the Pacific and is part of a global organisation that works in more than 25 countries worldwide.
Globally, 9 out of 10 people who are blind don’t need to be; their condition is preventable or treatable.
The Foundation works with Pacific governments, Ministries of Health, and universities to restore sight to the needlessly blind and vision impaired, train local eye health specialists to provide eye care services in their own communities and strengthen local health systems so that everyone can access quality eye care.
Donate to support our work ending avoidable blindness and vision impairment in the Pacific. Thanks to Specsavers, your donation will be matched, so your $25 = $50, meaning your donation will have double the impact.
Give the gift of sight this Christmas at https://giftofsight.hollows.org.nz/ and transform the lives of many. Make Fred's legacy your legacy.
