On International Women’s Day, Noor Dubai has highlighted its efforts to encourage eye health among women in the developing countries.

The foundation has directed mobile eye camps since its establishment in 2008, which aim to offer eye health care in remote areas where patients would become blind without any treatment.

As per the latest statistics published by the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness report, over 50 million people globally are blind, and of the figure around 64 percent are women. The figure also has the chances to increase to 75 million by 2020 unless efforts are taken to prevent blindness. Recently, Noor has organized a three-month treatment camp in Bangladesh for Rohingya refugees.
