Join our sustainable community of Fred's Partners who are making a lasting impact in the Pacific - so that one day we won't be needed.

What is the Fred’s Partners community?

Four out of five people in the Pacific who are blind, don’t need to be. Fred Hollows believed this was unacceptable, so do we - and so do Fred’s Partners.

Fred’s Partners are a community of monthly givers who want to continue the work that Fred started. They believe that no one should be blind if it is avoidable and are determined to help change this.

Fred's Partners support eye doctor training, new infrastructure and understand that sight is the beginning of self-reliance for disadvantaged communites in the Pacific.

Why should I give a monthly gift?

A one-off donation allows us to restore sight and change a life.

A monthly gift means sustainable eye care services, delivered by local people who will change multiple lives - so that one day we won’t be needed.

A monthly gift means that we can invest in our long-term Pacific plan.

A monthly gift....

... allows us to train local doctors to become eye-care specialists. Once fully trained they can hold numerous consultations every week and perform even more sight-saving operations in their home country.

... means we can commit to training nurses. They are the vital link between eye care services and local communities, especially in the Pacific where many people live in rural or isolated locations.

... means we can invest in building clinics. This means there will be dedicated eye care facilities with the equipment and capacity needed to help restore sight.

"We're giving them their independence" - Professor Fred Hollows
