The Eyes2Eyes Foundation

A registered non-profit funding the miracle of sight restoration in South Africa.

Our Mission

Our mission is to restore sight to young children and adults living with preventable corneal blindness in the Western Cape. We raise funds to provide world class technology to manage corneal blindness.


Corneal blindness affects more than 12 million people around the globe. 80% of this is preventable. South Africa is no different, except that corneal services in our country are hugely under-resourced.

What drives us

In December 2018, our founder, Amanda contracted a rare bacterial infection – leaving her blind within two weeks. She could see hand movement only and life took a serious tumble.
