Mission, vision, values

Our mission: Prevent avoidable blindness and visual impairments

The CBM Luxembourg Foundation has set itself the goal of supporting projects that prevent avoidable blindness and visual impairment. It also helps to improve the quality of life for people with other disabilities.

Our vision: Reduce visual deficits and other handicaps by strengthening local partners

In a limited number of particularly disadvantaged countries, the CBM Luxembourg Foundation supports local partners in their efforts to reduce visual deficits and other disabilities. These prevention and treatment projects go hand in hand with improving the quality of life for people with such disabilities.
