The hard facts

What's the plan

The Qatar Fund for Development has invested $8 million into Qatar Creating Vision.
The initiative will bring charity partners and hospitals together to improve 11 eye care units in India and 8 in Bangladesh.
A dedicated unit for retinopathy of prematurity which affects premature babies, will be established in Bangladesh.
Together the partners will deliver over 5.5 million eye tests and treatments.
Qatar Creating Vision will train 6,700 medical professionals.
Children will receive eye tests at their school and be fitted with glasses free of charge – there and then.
We create a safety net to help those who cannot afford treatment, meaning all have access to top quality eye care.
