Eye care in Ghana

Halma announced on World Sight Day today (10 October) that it has raised $200,000 (USD, £163,500) that will go towards providing sight-saving surgery to underserved communities in Ghana.

The company, which owns Volk, Keeler, Medicel and MST, raised the money through its Gift of Sight campaign that launched on World Sight Day last year.

Halma explained that the money will fund over 8000 eye surgeries through its non-governmental partner, the Himalayan Cataract Project in Ghana.

Executive director at Halma, Adam Meyers, said: “We are honoured to support the Himalayan Cataract Project in its important work and are proud that Halma has enabled 8000 eye surgeries at surgical outreaches in Ghana this year.”
