Restore Sight, Restore Hope: Cataract Initiative in Ethiopia and Uganda

At Humanity-Increased, we believe that everyone deserves the right to see the world in all its beauty. In Ethiopia and Uganda, millions are deprived of this basic right due to cataracts—a treatable condition that remains the leading cause of preventable blindness. Our mission is to change this narrative by providing life-changing cataract surgeries to those in dire need.

The Challenge

Cataracts account for nearly 70% of blindness in Uganda and a significant portion in Ethiopia, affecting over 1.6% of the population. These numbers are not just statistics; they represent fathers who can’t work, mothers who can’t see their children’s faces, and children who can’t attend school.

Our Work

Humanity-Increased is actively working to address this health crisis through:

  • Mobile Surgery Units:Bringing high-quality eye care directly to remote communities.
  • Training Local Healthcare Workers: Ensuring sustainable care and building local capacity.
  • Raising Awareness: Educating communities about eye health and the importance of early cataract detection.
