Non-profit VisionSpring launched eyesight testing of 47,500 Zambians and 681 members of the Dalai Lama’s community in India as part of overseas eye care programmes.

Ella Gudwin, CEO of VisionSpring said: ‘We are honoured to collaborate with Live Well and CCZ to build healthy, prosperous communities. With each pair of glasses, individuals will sustain their livelihoods and increase earnings; experience greater safety and well-being; and more easily participate in mobile banking and the digital economy.’
