ADDA Kenya has participated in the seeing is Believing – a Child eye health program by Standard Chartered Bank in Kenya on the 26th October 2014.

Over 17,000 participants including persons with disabilities (PWDs) ran in various events to raise funds to fight visual impairment. The program promotes comprehensive eye health and reduces avoidable blindness. The provision of quality, child friendly and child centered eye health services in the catchment areas of the programme anticipates serving over 4 million children 0 to 15 years of age.

The East African program is implemented in partnership with the Ministries of health and education in the three countries, the East Africa College of Ophthalmology together with two NGO consortium led by CBM and Brien Holden Vision Institute.

Since launching the programme globally in 2003, Standard Charted has contributed to over 2.9 million cataract operations and surgically interventions, and treated 1.9 million people for river blindness.

ADDA Kenya will explore possibilities for group sponsorships to encourage various categories of PWDs to participate in the 2015 event as we promote disability inclusion in the banking and micro finance sector as well as in organizations that participated in 2014 event and in future ones.
