November 2012 I visited Bangladesh to picture people before, druing and after theier eye surgery.
All the operations and surveys were organized and paid by Orbis, an international NGO focused on sight saving.
The journey was organized by their german partner organisation iwishusun. This fashion label donates 50 Dollars with every down jacket they sell.
50 Dollar is the amount which is needful for an eye operation inm Bangladesh.
39 million people on this planet are blind.
80% of these cases are preventable.
