“Vision For The Poor”, started in 2007, is one of VNHElp’s most successful initiatives. This program provides free cataract surgery for low-income people in Vietnam and has an almost immediate, very significant impact on their lives. With their sight restored, many of the program’s beneficiaries regain a sense of self-sufficiency. Elderly patients are less of a burden on their family and can even become fully independent, while younger patients can work towards new life goals again. Take a look at the video below to see how such a “Journey to regain vision” played out for 3 of our cataract patients (an English version will be available at a later date).
