The Fred Hollows Foundation

  • Office No. 315 and 316, International Humanitarian City, Dubai, UAE

The Foundation works in more than 25 countries and has restored sight to 2.5 million people.

We are driven by Fred’s vision to eliminate avoidable blindness, for all to have access to quality health services and to stand up for what is right. We believe that collaboration, getting things done with integrity, and empowering local communities is the best way to make a difference.

The Foundation is overseen by our Board of Directors, which includes Gabi Hollows. CEO Ian Wishart leads day-to-day operations, and we’re still advised by Fred’s great mate and fellow humanitarian, Dr Sanduk Ruit. We are independent, not-for-profit, politically unaligned and secular. The Fred Hollows Foundation - Dubai became a registered member of the International Humanitarian City in 2017. We are proud to be working with the UAE community to end avoidable blindness around the globe.
