SOWO Eye clinic is a health initiative to provide rehabilitation services at community level. This program aim to empower people with disabilities to enjoy education, health, and wellbeing, and to participate fully in social, cultural, civil, and political life. We do this by offering support to people with disabilities and by supporting projects – such as income-generating projects – in which people with disabilities can take the lead. This has stimulated local initiatives and encouraged self-determination.
Eye care services play an important role in identifying people with visual impairment and addressing their initial requirements, including treatment. SOWO encourages visual impaired persons to visit the eye medical camps.
The program has elucidated physical, economic, attitudinal barriers exhibited in communities
