Surprising to hear yes but sadly with a lack of human resources, coupled with a lack of training facilities for qualified ophthalmologists and soaring costs the prevention measures are difficult to achieve; the problem is compounded further by a lack of the necessary infrastructure combined with little modern technology at the district level. Poorly maintained equipment and the absence of any referral chain along with a lack of motivation, advocacy, and awareness make cataract a huge burden for the poor.
Our dedicated team in Pakistan work around the year identifying areas and planning the two assessment camps.
Empowering the poor by supporting their income-generating activities.
The Well Foundation livelihoods project
Give a Man a fish he will eat for a day, Teach him to fish he will eat for a lifetime
Over 1 billion people live on less than £1.25 a day. Nearly 250 million children have to work to help their families. More than 1.3 billion around the world live in extreme poverty
The Income Generating Programme helps poor families to set up income generating activities based on their skills and availability of local resources. In case of lack of skills and resources the programme also helps family members by providing training to enhance their skills. Through trained social mobilisers local resources are explored to create livelihood opportunities and generate income on a sustainable basis.

Some words from our donors
All donations received with thanks!
We can't do what we do without your help.
The Well Foundation is an incredible charity which has allowed myself and my family to donate to excellent causes on a monthly basis. We donate knowing full well where our money is going & that the full amount is reaching the desired places. Within the past year we have managed to build wells, provide Braille Qurans and also help in building part of a mosque. This is all with the help of The Well Foundation and it's fantastic volunteers.
The Well Foundation has achieved so much in such little time. My son has really benefited from their activities.
Having been connected to the charity for many years I have experienced the joy of the recipients of a water well flowing back to the donors and I have loved being part of that bridge. It is like experiencing a miracle. In these precious moments there is a powerful realisation that we are all human and we are all connected in our depths. Water transcends all barriers: from the depths of a well to the provision of life. The gift of water you give to others is the gift you give to yourself. Simply going a day without water quickly makes you appreciate that having clean water is a true blessing. The Well Foundation is a cause that is very close to my heart. It connects me to a purpose that is far greater and more eternal than myself and I have been able to share this gift with my family. A continuous charity where the benefit of your contribution will continue to flow. Faiza and Fahim and The Well Foundation have given me more than I could have ever imagined on this journey and they will always have my continued support. Thank you.
