Preserving Sight

One child goes blind each minute and one adult every five seconds. Yet 80% of blinding diseases are avoidable. The Organization for the Prevention of Blindness, or l’Organisation pour la Prévention de la Cécité, fights to protect and preserve sight. The OPC is an international NGO with specific expertise in ocular public health and has been in operation since 1978. It is a recognised charity in an official working relationship with the World Health Organization; is an active member of the global initiative Vision 2020- the Right to Sight; and is approved by the French branch of the International Committee on Fundraising Organizations ’Comité de la Charte’.
