OPHTAMOLOGISTS FOR AFRICA
It is a voluntary association formed by doctors, healthcare professionals and volunteers freely dedicating part of their time to the cure and the prevention of ocular diseases in Africa and in Italy.
Amoa and bobsdrunk
The collaboration arises with the will of supporting and promoting an association devoting its resources to the cure and the prevention of eye diseases in Africa since 1997.
Amoa and bobsdrunk move their first steps together a few years ago, intending to create an active contribution to support the project.
Everything starts thanks to the great passion of one of our team's backbone, Gianluca Giulietti, who decides to dedicate his big heart to volunteer missions in Africa, becoming active part of the onlus (NPO).
Today Gianluca is no longer among us, but our wish is to take his ideals forward and to honour his unforgettable altruism.
For this reason, we will destine a percentage of our funds to an optical laboratory in Camerun, that needs every year to be supplied with glasses lenses and frames.
This is our mission in AMOA project!
AMOA promotes the sustainability and the self-management of the realised structures, and the professional autonomy of the local medical staff.
AMOA's mission is to reduce preventable blindness and to help visually impaired people in Africa.
The vision for AMOA is that no one becomes blind due to lack of resources and trained medical healthcare personnel.
