Mr Sabry is Director of Programmes and Sustainability at the Al Noor Magrabi Foundation in Cairo, Egypt. Mr Sabry’s dedication to the prevention of blindness is apparent from the administrative and supervisory level down into the trenches of service delivery. Egypt is a desert country with most of its population living along the great Nile River. Some people live on isolated islands where there is no medical care at all. Under Mr. Baha’a’s direction, outreach caravans are able to reach these patients, but it is a difficult journey and one which takes tremendous dedication.
Mr. Baha’a Eldin Kamal Sabry was named by the International Eye Foundation as its Eye Health Hero at the IAPB 9th General Assembly in Hyderabad, 17-20 September 2012.
