Situation

People with inherited sight loss face unique challenges, as they live not only with visual impairment, but also with the knowledge of its inevitable onset and deterioration. Losing your sight can lead to depression, anxiety, social isolation and reduced quality of life, as well as difficulties with finding employment. We aim to do all we can to make these challenges a thing of the past.

Solution

We will carefully invest the funds raised into the most promising medical research projects currently taking place. Our selective approach aims to achieve the maximum amount of progress.
