Sahara Group has reaffirmed its commitment to fight blindness through the #makevisoncount campaign in partnership with the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme is designed to raise public awareness on blindness and vision impairment as major international public health issues.

#Makevisoncount is in celebration of World Sight Day- an annual day of awareness focusing global attention on blindness and vision impairment.

Sahara Group, in a statement, said, “beyond the ability to see, the eye represents the window to illumination, emancipation and empowerment.

“Collaborative efforts, among others, must be targeted towards educating target audiences about blindness prevention through elaborate campaigns that should focus more on indigent populations across the globe”.

The company says it carried out 9,000 free eye screening interventions and 2,500 eye surgeries across West Africa between 2011 and 2016.
