Project supported since 2015
L'OCCITANE Hong Kong has been supporting the Hong Kong Society for the Blind since 2015 to help them renovate a screening bus, train medical personnel, to carry out awareness-raising and screening activities in nursery and primary schools in the country.
Using vision screening buses to provide eye screening services to kindergartens was originated at 2004 by the Hong Kong Society for the Blind. The Society is also specialized in providing detailed outreach vision assessment to the visually impaired and the disabled students where they are more relaxed in familiar and comfortable environment at school.
In 2019, L'OCCITANE Hong Kong and the Foundation renewed its support to the NGO's project "Eye care services for the kindergarten children and visually impaired students". This new project targets children and students from underprivileged or low-income families. Screening and distribution of eyeglasses are organized in nurseries and for visually impaired or disabled students. L'OCCITANE employees arealso able to help the association to carry out eye screenings in day-care centers. The results of these medical examinations will be reported to IAPB1.
