In 2021, VisionSpring was awarded $15,000 in general operating expenses. The millions of workers they serve – including garment workers, tea pickers, truck drivers, crafts-persons, and students – are now responding to COVID-19 in their communities. Because their eye screening work intersects with community health workers, hospitals, government health ministries, supply chain providers and the manufacturing sector, the organization has built-in capabilities that have been helpful in responding to COVID-19.
