Awareness Across Zambia Through Outreach Programmes
In line with Vision Care’s Mission and Vision statements, empowering people with the correct eye care health knowledge and awareness is key. Despite the availability of the technology and facilities in Zambia, basic eye care education, optical services with eyeglasses often are either inaccessible or unaffordable for the poor in rural and peri-urban areas.
Vision Care runs eye camps for eye education and eye care sensitisation programmes in these communities via monthly eye clinics, providing much needed services to Zambian community at large. The free eye-screening outreach programmes are done in association with churches, schools, corporates and ophthalmologists in the areas where services and eye care education is imparted.

Every year, on the 24th October, a full one day cricket tournament will take place wherein participants from many organisations come together and part-take in this trophy. Vision Care educates and encourages more and more local participants to visit and enjoy the spirit of independence and spend their quality time watching and playing sports.

Participation in fundraising events/charitable events
