Mission: The Combat Blindness Foundation is a non-profit health organization incorporated in Wisconsin. We are dedicated to relieving human suffering by preventing and curing blindness among the most vulnerable sectors of society, the young and the old, in the most vulnerable parts of the world, the developing countries. We accomplish our goals through direct patient care, education, developing and implementing the sustainable delivery of these services, and contributions of medical equipment and supplies. We work with other organizations with similar objectives to increase the impact of our work.We believe that the fortunate have the duty to share their good fortune by compassionately serving the less fortunate. Those who are served can then become active and productive members of society rather than living a life of suffering and dependence.

Combat Blindness is a wonderful foundation. Since learning more about this organization, I have been impressed with how much can be done for so little. Just $25 can save someone's eyesight! This means that a child can have a productive future, a person improve their quality of life, and a grandparent can see their grandchild.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Working with other volunteers and board members

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue the good work they are already doing.

I am involved in a number of charitable organization and agreed to work with Combat Blindess since the cause is so great. Combat Blindess is devoted to a need which effects a human being the most i.e. the ability to see. The majority of the work is done by volunteers thereby ensuring nearly 100% of the funds go to charity. The organization has been around for many years and we are spreading the word in Southern California.
