Vision Action is currently concentrating its main activities in Cameroon.
There is a massive need for vision correction, both to improve quality of life and keep people productive and healthy.
Et Cam Foundation
In Cameroon we work with the Et Cam Foundation, a charity set up to help orphans and vulnerable families.
(there will be a link to their website soon – put it here)
Without a local community presence our work is impossible.
We have together trained and equipped 15 Spec Vendors, and will expand the service in September 2012.
Et Cam provides essential help in many ways, including –
Developing business strategy
Making links with medical services and community leaders
Selecting, training and supporting Spec Vendors
Publicizing the service
Storing / distributing spectacles as required
Maintaining service quality and fair pricing
In return for this vital support Et Cam derives a small income to help their programmes.
Vision Action and Et Cam have an office in the coastal town of Limbe.
This is the centre of our operations in Cameroon.
