Vision for all
The foundation was established in 2001 by Dr. Mermoud and Dr. Karlen. Its aim is the creation and support of ophthalmological hospitals in developing countries (India, Nepal, many African countries...). From 2001 - 2020 the foundation has realized more than 20 projects worldwide. The foundation lives on donations from patients treated in the swiss visio network as well as from the doctors working there.
Every year thousands of patients will benefit from the joy of regaining their eyesight thanks to the operations carried out in the 20 VFA centres.
The Genolier Foundation supports NGOs through donations of medical equipment and furniture offered by the Swiss Medical Network clinics and encourages the realization of humanitarian missions with its partner NGOs. In particular, the Genolier Foundation supports the Vision for All Foundation, which works for access to ophthalmic care in Africa.
