Join us in our bid to cover 600,000km, raise €300,000 and help fight avoidable blindness!
Burkina Faso has always been important to L’OCCITANE. Our relationship with Burkina Faso’s shea butter producers began in the 1980s.
That’s why, for the sixth edition of the Race for Vision, we’ve decided to focus on our fight against avoidable blindness in Burkina Faso.
Did you know that visual impairment affects 25% of people in Burkina Faso? And that in rural areas – which are home to 75% of the population – there is not even one ophthalmologist for every two million people?
The L’OCCITANE Foundation supports the work of four organisations.
Light for the World is fighting for better access to quality eye care and helping healthcare workers strengthen their skills. Our support is increasing health centres’ capacity by providing new equipment.
Our collaboration with Helen Keller International and ASMAE offers care to help prevent blindness in children in the Central Plateau and the center of the country.
With Sightsavers, we’ve helped eliminate two diseases that cause blindness in the Cascades region.
