Cooperation Projects

The Asian Foundation for the Prevention of Blindness (AFPB) has donated six vehicles to be used to provide ophthalmic operations to the Regaining Eyesight Project, a charity initiative which was established by the China Women’s Development Foundation (CWDF) and Hong Kong ophthalmologist Dennis Lam in 2006. Thanks to the AFPB’s support, the project has offered over 60,000 patients cataract surgery.
