Despite the significant reduction in the Prevalence of Blindness there are:

1.9 Million
People

Still blind people in Pakistan

190,000
People

Become blind every year

19.2 Million
People

People have impaired vision

  • Government spending on health is unlikely to increase
  • Due to inflation in energy and food people living around the poverty line (already 2/3rds of the population) will increase significantly.
  • So it is up to Civil Society organisations like LRBT to not only maintain their existing services but to expand them

Local Funding/International Donors

LRBT spent Rs 980 million ($ 9.4 Million) in 2015/16 for providing high quality eye care services to the poor absolutely free. This was made possible by the generosity of our local and foreign donors. 84 % of our donations are raised domestically from a wide variety of people ranging from individuals to large corporations. 16 % comes from outside the country from large international NGOs such as Sight Savers, the Graham Layton Trust, multinational corporations and individuals.

With patient volume growing by double digits and one new hospital our need for resources is great. We require Rs 1.15 Billion ($ 10.99 Million) in 2016/17 to be able to continue our programs to roll back the growth of curable blindness.

Help us to keep this beacon shining for the poor and the destitute. – Give the Gift of Sight
