Pious Projects of America Administered by Fahim Aref

$100 can cover the costs of eye surgery for blind children

In 2017, in collaboration with Al-Basar, we raised $50,000 to support camps in Mali. We would like to raise $50,000 again this year to bring these camps to another country of choice. 

Vision & Mission: It is said that ‘every five seconds one person goes blind and a child goes blind every minute.' There are 45 Million blind people in our world, and an additional 100 Million men, women & children are estimated to be blind by year 2020 (WHO). The mission of BIF is to eliminate the avoidable & treatable causes of blindness and to give all the needlessly blind people in the world a right to sight.

 

Goals of Blindness Control Camps:  

  • Treat those suffering from eye diseases such as cataracts or glaucoma 

  • Supporting ministries of health in countries that suffer from shortage of Ophthalmologists and skilled eye nurses

 

Objectives of the Eye Camp:

  • Examining/Screening 4000+ eye-patients

  • Distributing necessary medication to patients of different eye-diseases 

  • Performing 400+ surgeries including cataract extraction by ECCE-IOL with SICS and Phaco-emulsification methods and Glaucoma surgery such as Trabeculectomy  or other minor surgeries such as Pterygium, Chalazion, Entropion etc. 

 

The gift of sight is such a blessing that many of us take for granted. Try to go half a day blindfolded to appreciate the enormity of this blessing that tens of thousands live without. 

Please help us reach our goal in order to provide Dr. Adel with Al-Basar organization the resources he needs. 

The Foundation operates medical campaign camps all over Africa and Asia and Views around 5000 - 7000 people
per camp.  
 
In the the last 23 years Al-Basar has worked in 42 countries (which held 924 medical camps) and tested & 
treated over 2 million people with thousands of successful eye surgeries.
