WHO WE ARE

Vision Care is an international relief organization dedicated to the prevention of blindness through our global projects and initiatives.

Vision Care is a member of the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB), and participant of ‘VISION 2020’, a global initiative of the IAPB and the World Health Organization (WHO).
We work for the benefit of all people throughout the world who are suffering from vision problems, regardless of their race, color, creed, national origin or religion.

Vision Care has since conducted more than 25 Vision Eye Camps a year and has grown into an international non-profit organization serving 38 countries throughout Asia, Africa and Central-South America.

OUR MISSION & VISION

RESTORE SIGHT, SHARE VISION
Sharing a Brighter World Together

Mission

As God commands us to love our neighbors, and serve them with His love and compassion, we go everywhere in the world to help those who are suffering, especially from vision disabilities, so that they will be able to see with healthy eyes, minds, and souls.


Vision

We aim to let the world know that although vision problems can be recovered by proper prevention and timely treatment, there are many people losing vision daily due to poor living conditions. We help patients get regular treatment at short-term eye camps and long-term base clinics by having doctors, missionaries, volunteers, and sponsors work together.
