This project is supported by the L'OCCITANE Foundation.


Ukraine continues to suffer an ongoing war with Russia. Despite the upheavals, Seva partners can still serve their communities to the best of their abilities. Every month, hospitals screen babies, as well as patients living with HIV and AIDS, for blinding eye diseases. They do it despite inconsistent electricity and water supply, as well as regular breakdowns in the supply chain.

It is in this context that the L'OCCITANE Foundation has decided to support the Seva Foundation and its project aimed at preventing avoidable blindness in children and people with HIV.


Supported Project

The L'OCCITANE Foundation supports the Seva Foundation and its project in the cities of Odessa and Mykolaiv, Ukraine, which aims to develop and strengthen ongoing blindness prevention programs in the country, particularly for babies born prematurely and people with HIV. Seva and its partners will support neonatology services in their screenings as well as hospitals specializing in infectious diseases, in particular by equipping them with medical devices and providing them with training. Over 3 years, 1,700 babies will benefit from the help provided by the Seva Foundation, and 19 eye health professionals will be trained.
