Our outreach work provides essential sight-saving and life-changing eye care to the most remote and impoverished communities in the region for free. Our outreach clinics include the Anabta Clinic, Hebron Hospital, Gaza Hospital and 2 mobile outreach vans visiting remote villages in the West Bank and Gaza. Together they serve a population of 2.5 million people.
By protecting sight, we are safeguarding the financial and social independence of people of all ages across the West Bank and Gaza. Donations help us maintain and expand vital work.
The costs for each of our clinics/hospitals are as follows:
Gaza, where we recently opened a second operating theatre, costs £1,322,000 annually. In 2022 over 38,500 patients were treated and 2,900 major operations were performed at our Gaza Hospital. We also run a mobile outreach programme in Gaza.
