Humanity First is an international aid agency that provides aid and assistance to those in need irrespective of race, religion or politics from registered offices now in 51 countries. HF have been working on projects in 51 countries across 6 continents.
There are many visually impaired people around the world, but in low income countries, this exacerbates the effects of poverty. Typically, children with refractive error issues cannot study effectively and drop out of education, whilst older people start to suffer from conditions such as glaucoma and cataracts. Humanity First offers free or subsidised consultations, prescription glasses and cataract surgery. HF is also deploying mobile surgery units in Africa. Over 15,000 patients have benefitted so far.
