The Fred Hollows Foundation carries on the work of a very special New Zealander, the late Professor Fred Hollows (1929-1993).
Fred was an internationally acclaimed eye surgeon and social justice activist who championed the right of all people to high quality and affordable eye care.
The Fred Hollows Foundation was established in Sydney, Australia, on 3 September 1992, just five months before Professor Fred Hollows passed away.
The foundation has a vision of a world where no one is needlessly blind, and work to restore sight and end avoidable blindness in more than 29 developing countries across Asia, Africa and the Pacific. Our sight-restoring work is funded entirely by the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, foundations and governments. In the last five years alone,The Foundation has performed nearly one million sight-restoring operations and treatments; in many cases all it took was a simple 20 minute operation costing as little as $25.
