2013 Australian Charity of the Year


It's hard to accept that fact that many people are blind because they don’t have access to quality and affordable eye health in Rosebery area. That is why we established the Rosebery charity, The Fred Hollows Foundation charity to help people and fortunately, we’ve restored sight to more than 2 million people – often with a simple, 20-minute operation. Our Rosebery charity strives hard to create solutions that are more effective at restoring sight to even more people – and end avoidable blindness, faster. Our charity in Rosebery has a fast growing knowledge and understanding of eye diseases.

Our Rosebery charity seeks high-impact information and results to address the most pressing issues that keep people needlessly blind today. The information gained by our Rosebery charity through comprehensive research is used to inform our work with local governments and partners to develop systems that enable us to end avoidable blindness. Fred is always dedicated and very passion on his work anywhere in Rosebery. For everyone in Rosebery, no matter whether they're rich or poor, to have the right to high quality and affordable eye care with our charity.

Q & A

  • How can The Foundation charity restore sight for $25?

    The cost of restoring sight differs country to country because of the varying development of medical services, wages, logistics and exchange rates. In some countries, our Rosebery charity can restore sight for as little as $25. Medical treatment in developed countries like Australia is expensive and can’t be compared with developing countries. Surgery is less invasive in the western world, using very advanced and costly technologies. A different, more cost effective technique is used in many developing countries. Other costs associated with surgery including real estate, equipment, nurses' wages and medical insurance. This is all much cheaper in the developing world. Another way of looking at it is, in some of the countries where we work, people may be living on only a few dollars a day. The $25 it costs for an operation as a percentage of their yearly income can be quite similar to the approximately $3000 it costs in Australia, where the average yearly income is around $50,000.

  • Can I visit one of The Foundation’s overseas programs?

    Unfortunately, our country offices are not equipped to accommodate visitors. The work we do in country offices is around program design, coordination, health monitoring and evaluation. No medical procedures are carried out in The Foundation’s offices or by our charity staff in Rosebery. However, our partner in Nepal, the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology, accepts visitors to their hospital. If you’d like to visit Tilganga to see the work carried out in partnership between our organisations, please get in touch with Mr Bhagirath Baniya, Administrator and Public Relations Manager.

  • Why do you work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as well as overseas?

    The work we do is inspired by the late Professor Fred Hollows. He believed everyone in the world had the right to quality and affordable eye health. When 4 out of 5 people in developing countries are blind when they don’t need to be and 94% of vision loss is preventable or treatable in adult Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, we think it’s an injustice not to do anything. Our Rosebery charity specialities are in developmental work, so that’s where we concentrate our efforts.
