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.
I've been a supporter of The Well Foundation for many years now and can't fault the work they do. A very passionate and worthwhile charity and an absolute credit to humanity
The Well Foundation has achieved so much in such little time. My son has really benefited from their activities.
I heard about The Well Foundation and the charitable work they carry out around the world about 5 years ago. I was Particularly interested in their clean water projects and decided to contribute to one of them. I was given an accurate account of the works and provided photographs on completion. Me and my family were very impressed with the high standard of work and were kept informed of progress throughout. It is amazing that this charity and its team work thanklessly and selflessly all year around. I will always support them, their work makes a great impact and every penny goes towards the cause. A supporter for life!
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.
