The Ruit Foundation
Outside our core focus, we are a founder and supporter of The Ruit Foundation. The Foundation has developed a Community Eye Hospital model and we are helping export it to locations in Asia and Africa. Not only will these hospitals restore the vision of thousands of patients per year, but each one will be self-sustainable within approximately 4-6 years.
Committed to funding one hospital, the FFF is helping The Ruit Foundation find partners to take ownership of other hospitals. We can think of no other medical intervention which has such a huge impact on reducing poverty, by restoring not only individuals’ independence but also that of their carers, who can return to work or school.
