Our aim is to
take ocular surgery to those who need it most.
We believe non-profit organisation Africa20Twenty has a solution.
Africa20Twenty was inspired by the ‘Eyes of Zion’ mobile operating room, an initiative spearheaded by Prof Assia Professor at the Faculty of Medicine Tel Aviv University Israel. The mobile operating room is essentially a travelling clinic which performs routine cataract surgeries in rural communities without access to medical services. Its lifechanging work has restored the sight of hundreds/thousands of people - and with the right resources, Africa20Twenty aims to do the same.
In February 2019 Africa20Twenty founders Dr Johann Snyman (Ophthalmology Registrar),
Dr Kaps Moodley (Ophthalmologist and Clinical Head MPEH) and Peet Pieterse joined forces to find sponsors for this mission.
