The Power of Ten ! – A lesson in appreciation.

Only Ten Rand????…….. It cost almost half that to mail it to us !! I received a hand written envelope addressed to Grace Vision recently, with a postage stamp on it. It was from an elderly lady in the city of Durban, and contained a small note, in shaky handwriting, and a crumpled R10 note…

Grace Vision Zithulele Eye Care Centre

The implementation of the Grace Vision Zithulele Centre of eye care excellence has brought a new level of eye care service to the rural community south east of Mthatha. The year 2014 saw an ongoing, sustainable outreach into the communities who had lost all confidence in the existence of government eye care procedures.

The number of patients who come for eye examinations and treatment daily has in some cases increased fivefold. We have achieved one of our objectives, which was to re-establish confidence in the community that reliable eye care could be possible. Free eye surgery is now accessible to those in need.

Grace Vision provides free, high quality primary eye care to the poorest region of the poorest province in South Africa. Cataracts and glaucoma are prevalent conditions in poor communities.

Our specialised team aims to provide free cataract removal surgeries and vision restoration procedures to those who need it most. Blindness and poor vision can be reduced and even prevented if people have access to primary eye care and life-changing eye surgeries. Grace Vision aims to restore sight, dignity and life.
