Eighty percent of all blindness is either reversible or preventable in Burundi.


    That is why the Serge Burundi team has partnered with Hope Africa University with a dual goal —
  • to prove quality care now, and
  • to train the next generation of Burundian medical professionals for the future.


Our goal is to eliminate needless blindness in the Great Lakes Region of Africa as we serve as the caring hands of Jesus. We do that by treating the sick with skill and compassion, developing human resources and building physical infrastructure.


Kibuye Eye Clinic Project Fund:



The Kibuye Eye Clinic Fund assists with ongoing needs in the following ways:

1) Caring for the poorest when they don’t have the means to pay. Our aim is to create sustainable programs, so we subsidize care very judiciously while never turning anyone away for their lack of ability to pay.

2) Purchasing critical equipment and supplies allowing us to provide high-quality, affordable care for the poor.

3) Developing human resources via training on and off site, attending conferences and supporting the development of our national and regional ophthalmologic societies.


Estimated Cost: $60,000 per year.


Giving the gift of sight to the blind is consistently found to be one of the most cost-effective interventions in all of medicine.

A gift as small as $20 can restore someone’s vision.

In addition, we have two other specific project funds for eye care in Burundi:

The Hope Africa Eye Care International Referral Center is a 35,000 sq.ft. eye care facility that we hope to break ground on in 2022. The estimated project cost is $5.5 million.


The Kibuye Retinoblastoma Treatment Center which plans to fully launch in 2020 after a successful pilot program.

For more information about this project, please contact Dr. Cropsey at johncropsey@serge.org.
