4 out of 5 people in the developing world who are blind do not need to be!
Routine treatment costing as little as $25 can restore their sight and hope.
For every trainee in 2016 who passes their PMP exam and sends us a copy of their
PMI exam report, Mosaic will donate $25 to the Fred Hollows Foundation.
To help restore someone's sight is simple:
The Fred Hollows Foundation is inspired by the work of the late Professor Fred Hollows (1929–1993).
Fred was an eye doctor, a skilled surgeon of international renown and a
social justice activist. He was committed to improving the health of Indigenous
Australians and to reducing the cost of eye health care and treatment in developing
The Foundation was established in Sydney in 1992 by Gabi Hollows and a number of colleagues, five months before Fred passed away, with the aim of continuing and expanding on the program work he had started in Eritrea, Vietnam and Indigenous Australia.
The Foundation now works throughout Africa, Asia (South and South East) and Australia, focusing on blindness prevention and Australian Indigenous health. Through reducing the cost of cataract operations to as little as $25 in some developing countries, the foundation has helped to restore the sight of more than 1,000,000 people worldwide. We plan to help support this work through 2014 and beyond.
Why are we supporting the Fred Hollows Foundation? Patrick has had cataracts removed from both eyes and can appreciate the value of this simple, effective procedure - without the operations he would be blind, with the lens replacements he has nearly perfect vision. Supporting the Fred Hollows Foundation seems to us to be a cost effective way to make a massive difference in people's lives.
