A note from Seva's Executive Director about COVID-19

Fundación Visión

Fundación Visión is a non-profit organization that was established in 1999 out of the initiative and serving spirit of its current General Director, Dr. Rainald Duerksen, with the support of several dedicated co-workers. They currently perform over 45% of cataract surgical procedures in Paraguay. Since 2011, Seva has been working in partnership with Fundación Visión to expand access to populations living outside of the Asunción area which, due to low population density, have limited access to services.

Fundación Visión has a state of the art comprehensive eye hospital and training facility. In addition to the hospital in Asunción, Fundación Visión also has three other clinics and a mobile clinic bringing eye care to the most remote areas of Paraguay. The base hospital has a residency program that trains future ophthalmologists from across Latin America. Their programs focus on providing sustainable, high volume and high quality eye care to all people. Seva supports vital eye care service delivery in Paraguay including free cataract surgeries through the Focusing Philanthropy-Seva Foundation World Sight Day program.
