Explain that CBM’s purpose is to improve the quality of life of the world’s poorest people with disabilities, who live in the most disadvantaged societies. Whilst prevention of blindness remains our primary focus, CBM does much more – it is a disability charity. CBM is working in more than 100 Developing Countries, and in more than 1000 projects, - and always with local partners - , to cure and prevent blindness, perform orthopaedic operations, work in deafness projects, and help to provide rehabilitation facilities where possible.
