Visual impairment impacts the lives of over twelve thousand people and their families daily in our country, and as our organisation grows, we look forward to the day when the challenges of eye health are understood by our nation and that those of us who live with visual impairment are empowered to live a life after blindness that is rich, full and contributing to our society’s development. As our motto says: United We Stand, Divided We Fall! (PR)
