My Profile

I am running to raise money for The Andean Medical Mission.

AMM is a registered UK charity set up to help organize, build and manage eye care services for indigenous peoples in remote regions of the Bolivian Amazon and Andean mountains.

Blindness in  Northern Bolivia  is  about 3.8%, more than 1 in 20 people are blind. Most of this blindness is unnessecary and curable.

There are currently no eye care services in the remote regions of the Amazon and Andes.

The nearest eye hospital is 5 to 8 days away by riverboat

Cataract surgery in Bolivia is private and costs over £1,000, the average wage is $1.00

To reduce blindness in Bolivia  to the levels of most modern countries we need to carry out about  9,000 operations  over the next 6 years. This  would reach the target set by Vision 2020 of eliminating avoidable blindness.

Please sponsor me!
