Fred's legacy lives on in Timor-Leste

The Fred Hollows Foundation New Zealand and its partners officially opened a National Eye Centre in Dili on Thursday July 28th 2011. The Centre, which will provide high quality eye care and sight-restoring surgery to thousands of people suffering from avoidable blindness, is the first of its kind in Timor-Leste, a country that is still finding its feet following years of devastating conflict.

Thanks to Karen Abplanalp from www.doublescoop.co.nz for the production.

What we can do

Help keep Fred’s dream alive.

4 out of 5 people who are blind in the developing world don't need to be. Routine treatment costing as little as $25 can restore sight and hope.
