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