Stepping Stones has recently launched a new campaign to support its Icare Project. The objective of the I Care programme is to improve the vision of disadvantaged children in China in order to increase their chance of educational success, through the free provision of essential eye care equipment and services.
The Eye Care Crowd Funding Project is an online campaign, designed to raise money for squint eye surgeries. For 90 days only, we are hoping to raise RMB10,000, which will provide two migrant children with eye surgeries to correct squint. A contribution of any amount is greatly appreciated and could make a difference to our cause.
Squint is easily treated through surgery, but if neglected, can severely affect the quality of the child’s life and education, and potentially leading to major vision damage for the child in the future. These services are not affordable or accessible to most migrant children due to their disadvantaged economic and social status, lack of medical insurance, lack of knowledge of eye care, poor lighting in schools and homes, poor hygiene and a relatively heavy homework burden.
