Effect. Global.

Vision Aid Suisse enables people to engage in philanthropy.  It offers ways to make a positive impact. Ways to give to the poorest of the poor.

Excellent. Recognized. Established.

Obligated to our values.

We are here to help. Serious and reliable to do good for the world. We help sick people, we help poor people. The special quality of our work lies in the targeted implementation of demanding projects. Every helper is part of our movement to give new chances to life on the southern hemisphere of our planet.


Greatness is shown in its own consistency and reliability. We maintain our recognition through sovereignty. Both statements are principles of our parent organization's success.


More than ever, a serious approach to high-volume aid commitments is highly relevant. Especially south of the equator, there is a great need for true integrity. Effective. In favor of those who need our help.


On our way we always keep our objectivity. Today, health is unfortunately still a basic prerequisite for social equality. We uphold the principle that all people deserve equal opportunities.


When you help people, you help the planet. That doesn't just sound good - it's our conviction. And makes the work of VAS highly relevant. If we create comparatively small things in many places, we will soon achieve great things. For sure.

Founded by the Christoffel Mission for the Blind.

The Vision Aid Suisse Foundation was established in 2022 by the Christoffel Blind Mission (CBM). CBM is an international development organization for people with disabilities.

CBM’s goal is to break the cycle of poverty and disability in developing countries and to create a better quality of life and equal opportunities for people with disabilities.

Jenefer Asonga

Kenya, Vihiga County*

It started in 2020. Jenefer got a headache and her eye started to hurt. She was given medication from the pharmacy, but it did not work. Jenefer used to work on the farms in the area, but that’s no longer possible. Today she sits in front of her house and depends on her relatives who regularly bring her tea or porridge. Jenefer’s greatest wish is to be treated so that she can grow onions and tomatoes for a living.

*Jenefer Asonga 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.
