A New Vision
A New Vision is a non-profit organisation with a mission to restore sight, dignity and quality of life to the poor and marginalised people who needlessly have blindness. Together with the Lohia Foundation, A New Vision organises a high volume of high-quality free cataract surgery for disadvantaged communities and growing sustainable community eye clinics. These approaches are in line with the recommendation by WHO’s VISION 2020 “The Right to Sight” to help eradicate avoidable blindness.
Cataract, a clouding of the eyes that can lead to blindness, is still very common across Indonesia, particularly in rural areas where people cannot afford proper care. To combat the ailment, Lohia Foundation, in collaboration with A New Vision, provided free cataract operations to 1,000 patients in Jombang, East Java.
