GLT Restoring Sight in Pakistan for 40 years

GLT has been providing FREE eye care in Pakistan because millions of people cannot afford treatment when their sight deteriorates. More than half of the populations earn less than £2 per day and this income barely provides for staples; there is nothing left for healthcare. Pakistan does not have a free healthcare service and private treatment is too expensive. All of these factors conspire to disenfranchise people from their BASIC HUMAN RIGHT TO SIGHT. 

Working with our sister charity LRBT, we have built the largest network of 20 European standard hospitals and 54 clinics across the country. Our fundraising serves to support this network so that our patients can get the best treatment, help rehabilitate them so that they can become productive individuals again.
