Against Blindness

Objective

Cataracts are the biggest cause of blindness in the world. This deprives many children and adults from living a full and normal life. The main objective of the project “Against Blindness” in Mexico is to help people with minimal financial possibilities to regain their eyesight through low-cost cataract operations.

Ayudamexico also assists the modernization of Public Ophthalmology Centers by equipping them with sophisticated technologically medical devices and by raising funds for medical training of Mexican doctors and nurses.

We are helping the opthalmology clinic in Acapulco, Guerrero with funds to purchase hospital supplies to perform these necessary cataract operations. In the past 18 months, these Centers have performed 4100 operations and 30,000 consultations.

Locations

The "Contra la Ceguera por Cataratas" charity operates in the Mexican State of Guerrero and Chiapas.

Happy Children

This project is in a town called Villa Hidalgo which belongs to the state of Jalisco.

One of our collaborators has a child with a disabiliy. Over time he has found out that in that small village, he is not alone with this problem; there are many children with similar disabilities, unable to go to a "normal" school.
A school was then created ad hoc on the porperty of one of the concerned parents, with specialized assistance from Guadalajara.

The condition is that our support is considered as a start up aid to give the project a positive psychological boost. It should not be used as a regular contribution to the success of the project, which shall subsequently operate independently.
