Simply Helping is delighted to officially announce our partnership with The Fred Hollows Foundation. We believe in giving back to our community and helping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in gaining equal access to eye health care and treatment.
In Australia, The Fred Hollows Foundation is focused on ensuring no Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Person is needlessly blind or vision impaired.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are three times more likely to go blind than other Australians. The Fred Hollows Foundation works tirelessly in remote communities to provide vital medical treatment for better eye health. It also supports Aboriginal Community Controlled Health organisations to deliver culturally appropriate services to their own communities.
Together, Simply Helping and The Fred Hollows Foundation aim to make a lasting impact on Australia’s First Peoples and achieve our goal of closing the gap on eye health.
