ABALON Trust runs eye camps in sub-Saharan Africa to provide outreach to rural communities that would not ordinarily have access to eye health services. We transport the necessary medicines, equipment and eyeglasses to the eye camps which are then run by ABALON Trust volunteers. If you would like to sponsor a named eye-camp, you can do so by clicking on the “donate” button below:

Zimbabwe – Eye Care medicines to Zimbabwe (Dec 2020)
In December 2020, Farmigea Ophthalmics Limited Pharmaceuticals donated a consignment of eye-care pharmaceutical products to ABALON Trust for use in their work abroad.
Travel was restricted at the time due to the coronavirus pandemic meaning that ABALON was unable to deliver any eye-camps in 2020. The Trust is committed to providing outreach and support for eye-health to people living in sub-Saharan Africa, The Caribbean and low to middle income counties cross the commonwealth, so we used our embassy contacts and medical network to send these medicines to Zimbabwe for use by their ophthalmologists.
It is incredibly important to the Trustees and volunteers at ABALON Trust that we can continue to support our healthcare work abroad during the pandemic.
