For the establishment of a Mobile Eye Unit and its operating support.

The Hellenic Organization for Prevention and Diagnosis of Vision Problems was founded in September 2007. Its mission is to prevent and diagnose ophthalmologic problems in people who live in remote parts of the country and who are unable to obtain decent eye care due to shortages of doctors and complementary health facilities.
