About a year ago, I read the 1964 manifesto "First Things First", where among other things, it said that designers could use their abilities and experience in more important things than advertisements of detergent, toothpaste, hair loss lotions, etc... This belief makes me look for a much more social purpose of my profession, another glance at the work I do daily.

Mirades

First time the Foundation stood on the country, there were only 3 ophthalmologists on a 20 milion inhabitants population. Nowadays Eyes of the World colaborates on the education of native ophtalmologists, prevention, assignment of equipement and improvement of the eye care of people with ocular diseases through medical comissions from european doctors to Mozambique

Main features

Why this is important

The documentary is aimed to people who don't know what avoidable blindness is, and which are the complications that causes to the population who suffers it. It's also focused to people who suffers this diseases, as it can be useful to prevent and to raise awareness of the value of higien and eye care.

Goals of the crowdfunding campaign

Our main objective is to show the audience how eye care problems affect on a developing country, as well as the education and actuation of native ophthalmologists. Another goal is to see which influence the tradicional medicine has on society, and how does it coexists with modern medicine. Compare the complications which may find a blind person in Inhambane to a blind person from Barcelona. Observe which improvements experiments a patient who recovers the sight and how it affects on his day by day. All of this from a honest and close point of view.
