Click here to view a snapshot about us

St John of Jerusalem Eye Hospital Group is the only charitable provider of expert eye care in the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem.   

In the occupied Palestinian territories (oPt), the rate of blindness is ten times higher than in the West and over a third of the population lack food security.

Our sight-saving work is carried out to the highest international standards, and is often delivered against very challenging and difficult odds.

Without our services, many of these individuals would not seek treatment despite the risk of irreparable damage to their sight.

We treat patients regardless of ethnicity, religion or ability to pay.

80% of blindness and visual impairment is curable or preventable. We are striving against preventable blindness in the oPt, saving sight and changing lives.
