Magrabi Foundation, founded in 1999 in Cairo, Egypt, is a leading non-governmental organization that provides high quality eye care services regardless of their patients’ abilities to pay. Magrabi Foundation’s key activities include providing high-quality eye surgeries to effectively prevent or cure of blindness, reaching out to underserved communities through local Vision Centers and Outreach Caravans, and offering comprehensive education and training services at all levels, including eye surgeons, para-medical personnel, nurses, community organizations and hospital managers.
Seva works with Magrabi to build the foundation up as a regional model for community eye care services and program sustainability. Magrabi offers workshops on management for eye care delivery and conducts several projects aimed at increasing education and access to marginalized groups, with a focus on women. Magrabi’s outreach efforts are supported by TOMS One for One Program and Focusing Philanthropy’s World Sight Day campaigns, providing subsidized direct services, including glasses, medical treatments and surgeries.
In addition to these partners, we support capacity building in over 90 hospitals around the world.
