About Our Clinic In Namibia
Our incredible team of volunteers will run a 5-day clinic in Oshakati beginning Saturday, October 30. They will be led by Dr. Helena Ndume, the first recipient of the United Nations Nelson Mandela Prize for her dedicated service to humanity. SEE’s doctors have already screened an estimated 300 patients who will receive free sight restoring surgeries.
These efforts are made possible thanks to individual donations from people like you!
How Your Donation Is Put To Work
Your donations allow us to provide medical supplies to the hospital clinic where 5 surgical doctors and 25 medical volunteers will perform sight-restoring surgery to the community of Oshakati.
Ship Supplies & Equipment
To prepare for this clinic in October, our dedicated staff sent medical supplies to Namibia.
Community Outreach & Clinic Set Up
Our on-the-ground team of volunteers spreads the word that SEE’s free eye care services will be available while our medical staff prepares the clinic for patients.
Serve the Community with Free Eye Care
This is what it’s all about! Over the course of five days, our team aims to treat 300 individuals in need.
What SEE Does
SEE International is a non-profit organization helping to end preventable blindness in the United States and across the globe. We provide free eye care and sight-restoring surgeries to those in need. SEE is proud to be a top-rated US charity by Charity Navigator, GuideStar and BBB’s give.org.
Help us save someone's sight
The World Health Organization predicts the number of blind people worldwide will triple to 108 million by 2050 – mostly in areas where resources for high-quality eye care are scarce.
Over 75% of blindness cases are preventable or treatable with basic care and low-cost surgery.
We recruit volunteer experts
Our network of 650 eye care professionals is dedicated to restoring sight to the world’s most vulnerable populations.
We go where there's a need
We connect volunteers with local clinics in over 40 countries, then provide supplies and logistical support for their work.
We provide transformative eye care
Every year, our medical teams perform tens of thousands of free vision screenings and sight-restoring surgeries.
Why sight matters
Preventable blindness creates unnecessary hardships for thousands of people worldwide, including enormous financial burdens as their inability to see disallows them from working to support their families or themselves. People with vision impairments also experience higher rates of violence and abuse, and their family members are more likely to experience anxiety or depression.
Where we work
Our volunteer teams travel around the world and throughout the U.S. to provide critical eyecare and train other doctors to do the same, creating more sustainable eyecare systems across the globe.
