Aid is here.
Vision Aid Suisse is a foundation for improving the living conditions of people with disabilities worldwide. Together, we break the cycle of poverty and disability in developing countries. Together, we are creating a world where people with disabilities have the same opportunities and rights as everyone else and can live free from illness and poverty.
Help for Africa
The focus of our activities is in Africa, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. There we reach people in the poorest countries on earth.
Vision Impact Project Kenya
Together for Kenya with the national government
A big milestone for our Vision Impact Project in Kenya. The national government officially supports the aid project at the political level and and thus considerably simplifies the approval and implementation processes.
Emmanuel has the blinding eye disease cataract in both eyes. His mother has to care for Emmanuel and his twin sister Mary all by herself: Her husband died when the children were just six months old. Because the nine-year-old has such poor eyesight, it makes him sad that he can’t run around and play like the other kids. Emmanuel also has big problems at school: he tries to read what is written on the blackboard, but he does not succeed. He no longer recognizes the letters, neither on the blackboard nor in the exercise book.
* Emmanuel is a beneficiary of an older aid project in Kenya, as the VIP project cannot yet produce up-to-date portraits due to its recent implementation.
