Written and Directed by AJ Martinson III, The End of Blindness invites you on a harrowing journey of
selflessness, hope and joy as you follow Dr. Samuel Bora through the countryside of Ethiopia as he brings
sight to those forgotten by the rest of the world.
There are 800,000 blind people in Ethiopia who could see today if they had access to a $50 cataract surgery. Tropical Health Alliance Foundations V.I.P [Visually Impaired Persons] project brings sustainable ophthalmic care to the rural poor in Ethiopia. THAF’s leading project is a long term partnership with Dr. Samuel Bora, who is featured in this documentary!
Tropical Health Alliance Foundation helps people in Ethiopia live healthier and more self-sustainable lives by providing medical assistance, supporting education, and fueling creative enterprise. We work independently and in alliance with other organizations to accomplish our mission.
Clean water is vitally important to health in developing countries. Dehydration due to water-borne illness is one of the leading factors in early cataract development. THAF works with its alliance partners to protect springs and provide water collection systems. This prevents the spread of water-borne diseases and eases the burden placed on rural women.
