Since 2003, thanks to your support, we’ve raised over USD100 million and reached over 207.4 million people. We’ve tackled avoidable blindness by funding more than 232 eye care projects in low and middle-income communities globally, making it easier for many to return to education and work.
From 2019, Standard Chartered will no longer raise or match funds for Seeing is Believing. Standard Chartered, IAPB and our implementing partners will, however, remain focused on delivering projects until the end of 2020.
The Bank will build on Seeing is Believing’s legacy by mobilising support for the Vision Catalyst Fund and by supporting people with visual impairment through Futuremakers by Standard Chartered, the Bank’s new global initiative to tackle inequality and promote economic inclusion.
Since 2003, Seeing is Believing has reached more than 207.6 million people around the world who urgently need affordable eye care.
Currently, we continue to make a difference with 68 ongoing projects across 24 countries.
