Since launching the programme globally in 2003, stanchart marathon hascontributed to over 2.9 million cataract operations and surgical interventions, and treated 1.9 million people for river blindness. We have distributed over 500,000 pairs of spectacles and helped to train over 100,000 health workers. In total, we have reached over 45 million people through the provision of services to prevent and treat blindness, and educate communities about eye health. Standard Chartered is the largest cash-based private sector donation programme into the global campaign to eliminate avoidable blindness.

    In Kenya, through the Bank’s largest sponsorship in Africa, the Standard Chartered Nairobi International Marathon, to date we have raised over one million dollars. Through the proceeds of the Nairobi Marathon and in partnership with Christian Blind Mission, CBM, we sponsored cataract, glaucoma and trauma related surgeries for needy children under the age of nine at five hospitals country wide. The initiative has helped restore sight to over 4,500 children in Kenya through the hospitals
