Seva Foundation, TOMS’ lead Sight Giving Partner, began work in Cambodia in 1998. Hundreds of thousands of people were blind or visually impaired, and there were no schools to train ophthalmologists. The loss of sight means a loss of independence and ability to attend work or school, increasing the burden on families. More than 80% of blindness in Cambodia is either preventable or curable, but the vast majority of Cambodians do not have access to quality, affordable eye care. Today, Seva works with government hospitals in three provinces of Cambodia to bring essential eye care services to the most vulnerable populations, including rural communities, women and children. It supports training of local ophthalmologists and eye care professionals, and works with government hospitals to increase access and quality of eye care for patients in impoverished communities.
