Giving the gift of sight

The Well Foundation eye camp programme

The Well Foundation Eye and Health care programme has been implemented in Punjab Pakistan. There is a real need for support and help for the people who are poverty stricken. In a nation of 180 million cataract accounts for nearly 66 percent of all blindness.

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.

Creating a Chance and an Opportunity

Many people in developing countries have the skills and enthusiasm to generate an income for themselves, yet lack the opportunity to put it into practice, we at the Well Foundation believe in empowering people to help themselves. We strive to give people access to sustainable ways of supporting themselves and their communities. With support from our donors we’re making a real difference.
