The Postcard Initiative / Introduction

 

THE POSTCARD INITIATIVE

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) releases regular statistics about blindness and eye diseases at a global scale. According to this data, every year, the number of affected people rises at an alarming rate. In fact, one person in the world goes blind every 5 seconds. Over 90% of the world’s visually impaired live in developing countries and over 1.4 million children below the age of 15 are blind. 

Launched in May 2015, the Postcard Initiative is endorsed by Noor Dubai Foundation and is an ongoing initiative dedicated to restoring the gift of sight.
