The SightFirst Advisory Committee has approved several SightFirst grants in January 2018.
The approved grants are for comprehensive eye care system development, eye health personnel training, low vision infrastructure development, diabetic retinopathy screening and treatment and upgrading hospitals.
The Lions Clubs International Foundation‘s (LCIF) SightFirst programme funds high-quality, sustainable projects that deliver eye care services, develop infrastructure, train personnel and/or provide rehabilitation and education in underserved communities. Of utmost concern are the major causes of blindness and vision impairment: cataract, river blindness, trachoma, uncorrected refractive error and, especially in developed nations, diabetic eye disease and glaucoma.
