WHAT IS THE VISION? 

We have a vision for a permanent eye clinic in Meru, Kenya at Isiome Hope Centre - and work is already underway! 

A permanent clinic has always been our long term goal. A 365 day high-quality optometric and ophthalmic eye care clinic will enable us to give the expertise and treatment that is so needed, and to provide ongoing aftercare. It’s this ongoing aftercare that is essential to prevent blindness and restore sight for countless individuals across Kenya and beyond. 

The total estimated cost to fully refurbish, re-fit, provide furnishings and specialist equipment is £584,400. This includes £100,000 for solar panels, which would provide the clinic with a sustainable form of electricity for years to come. 

 

We’re so grateful for the donations that have already been made to get this building work off the ground. 

 

But we still have a while to go until this dream becomes a reality.

HERE'S WHY: 

With 80% of eye health conditions preventable or treatable, a permanent clinic can enable even more children to attain an education and adults to have a livelihood and support their families.

With this clinic we will be able to serve up to 21, 600 patients a year - a ten fold increase from what our pop-up clinics can currently achieve.

WHERE ARE WE AT?

 

Our partner in Kenya, EDFRI International, has made great progress on much of the base building conversion required. 


During our last team trip in November 2023, we were very excited to visit the site and review the ongoing works (see photos). The changes to the existing building have been considerable and the local Kenyan team have done an excellent job so far.

 

Wherever possible, we are using locally sourced materials and tradespeople, and the whole project is being managed locally through EDFRI International.

 

In turn, the whole community will benefit as they build a centre that will be an integral part of the community.

WILL YOU JOIN US?

 

Our phase one goal is near to completion, with finishing the base works in the next few months. This will be a significant milestone on our journey to a fully functional clinic. 

 

The work that remains to be completed pending further generous donations which will finish the fitout and building completion - like the consulting rooms and glazing laboratory. 

 

With 80% of eye health conditions preventable or treatable, a permanent clinic can enable even more children to attain an education and adults to have a livelihood and support their families. We believe in our vision to make quality eye care services not just a privilege for some but an essential for all. 

We see this as an adventure and we’re asking for you to join us as we work together to open eyes to a better life.
