L'OCCITANE CARES ABOUT SIGHT

Committed to fight avoidable blindness

Almost 285 million people around the world are blind or visually impaired, even though 80% of blindness is avoidable. L'OCCITANE supports the fight against avoidable blindness by supplying quality treatments and encouraging local initiatives since 2000.

PROJECT SOUTH AFRICA

Inspired by the work of the L’OCCITANE Foundation in their continuous fight against avoidable blindness, L’OCCITANE South Africa launched a local partnership in October 2015.

L’OCCITANE South Africa partnered with The South African National Council for the Blind, which was established in 1929 with the objectives of co-ordinating South African organisations for the blind.

L’OCCITANE South Africa fundraised so far almost R 110 000 as of November 2015 and will continue acting locally to fight avoidable blindness. L’OCCITANE Foundation helps co-financed the project.

A TRUE CORPORATE COMMITMENT

In 2016 the SANCB and their team examined 550 children in primary
schools in Tembisa, Gauteng, and identified tens of those who required
spectacles, children suffering from glaucoma and many who had eye allergies
that medication and referrals have been provided for. The optometrist and nurse
have also picked up social issues affecting children's eyesight and have talked
to their parents to address these issues.



For 2017 the
Brien Holden Vision Institute project “Our Children’s Vision” includes an eye
screening of 70 000 school children. Help us improve their life and contribute R 50 by purchasing one of the
gift set.

REACHING NEW HEIGHTS FOR SIGHT

"Since 2000, L’OCCITANE has been partnering with Orbis, a non-profit organization committed about Sight. In particular, the company has supported the launch of the new Flying Eye Hospital, a one-of-a-kind aircraft that travels around the world training doctors and nurses how to implement eye-saving procedures. 

The new aircraft was unveiled in Los Angeles in June this year with a dedicated L'OCCITANE laser eye treatment room. It will tour the US, Europe and Asia this summer before lifting off on its first two sight saving missions in China and Indonesia."
