What we do

Helen Keller has been working in Myanmar since 2001 when it launched a program to reinforce the existing cataract surgery infrastructure and to monitor trachoma, in close cooperation with the Ministry of Health. More recently, Helen Keller has expanded its portfolio beyond eye health to include nutritional assistance to children under 5 years of age. The Comic Relief nutritional support program, which began in 2021, enables households to make sustained improvements in nutrition through a community approach. In the area of eye health, Helen Keller assists the Government’s Prevention of Blindness Program to increase access to diabetic retinopathy services in rural areas of the country.
