Where We Work



In the midst of the conflict between Gaza and Israel, the Global Initiative for Vision and Empowerment (GIVE) embarked on a courageous journey to make a difference. Our team, fueled by a steadfast commitment to healing, ventured into adversity to bring hope to those affected....


Ecuador has a high rural population, not having access to healthcare. As well, the country’s public health care does not cover eyecare, meaning the 30,000 blind individuals do not have the means to find ways to cure their preventable blindness. GIVE has run glasses drives, donated medical supplies, clinical screenings, surgical interventions, and surgical teaching in Quito and Guayaquil.


There are 400,000 adults and 23,000 children in Vietnam who are blind. Even though blindness has decreased over the past 10 years, the country still struggles to provide adequate eye care especially in rural regions. GIVE has educated local doctors and surgeons, ran clinical screenings, and provided surgical care in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, and Hue.


Pakistan is the sixth most populated country in the world, yet 30% live under the poverty line. Around 30% of the population lives under the poverty line. Over 1.1 million people are blind in Pakistan, majorly in rural areas. GIVE has taught doctors, participated in missions, and glasses drives in Karachi, Lahore, Muzaffarabad, and the KPK province.


Mongolia’s population is 30% nomadic, meaning many do not have the means nor accessibility to adequate healthcare. Cataracts, glaucoma, and congenital disorders account for three quarters of Mongolia’s blindness. GIVE has taught and educated surgeons, ran clinical screenings, and surgical intervention in Ulaan Bator.
