Make a change
Being successful, as a company, is the result of hard work, committed people and passion but as well of a touch of luck and we must be grateful for it, for all those things we’ve been able to achieve in the past 7 years since we’ve started Fruition Partners.
While growing the business, we’ve made our best to ensure that the company was socially responsible towards its employees, customers and partners; that we were creating the conditions of success and self-fulfillment for all in a fair and ethical environment. This year, we wanted to take this social responsibility a step further and make a tangible difference in vulnerable people lives.
We heard about the Vision for All Foundation’s projects and were attracted by its focused scope and simplicity bringing immediate benefits to people in need. When meeting Prof. André Mermoud enthusiasm was rather immediate and decision was taken to make a financial contribution to support the Foundation’s activities.
Since 2001, the Vision for All Foundation leads ophthalmology programmes in Africa and Asia. Their objective is to create and support medical facilities for eye care delivery, to encourage ophthalmic education and to lead the effort to prevent and treat blindness.
“More than 100 people will recover their sight, thanks to the donation made by Fruition Partners”
Prof. André Mermoud, Vision For All Foundation President
On top of its donation, Fruition Partners has raised attention among its employees about blindness and its consequences by organizing a presentation of Prof. André Mermoud, President of the Vision for All Foundation. He explained us how the Foundation is working on building medical facilities as well as on encouraging training to improve eye care. Numbers are quite impressive: 80% of worldwide blindness is preventable and 90% of people who are visually impaired live in developing countries. This combined with a significant shortfall of ophthalmologists in those countries makes the situation crucial to improve.
During his presentation, Prof. A. Mermoud told us that more than 100 people will recover their sight, thanks to the donation made by Fruition Partners. This result makes us proud we’ve decided to support Vision for All – and I know everyone in the company is – and I’d like to congratulate Prof. A. Mermoud for the impressive work the Foundation is doing.
