Corporate Social Responsibility Division
"Our partnership with RRI, which will form a key part of our CSR strategy moving forward, aims to help alleviate the suffering of the vulnerable and disadvantaged through long-term solutions rather than hand-outs. The gift of sight can pave the way for education, work and, above all, a chance to achieve self-sufficiency that can benefit entire families. RRI has a remarkable track-record of improving lives, and we are honoured to support their work."
Mahmoud Nodjoumi, CEO
Nexus Insurance Brokers.
We're excited to announce our most recent CSR initiative with Nexus Insurance Brokers. Nexus, through Relief Riders International's CSR Division, is launching their "Ten in Ten" campaign, which aims to restore the eyesight of 10,000 people in India over the next 10 years.
India is listed as having the highest population of blind people in the world, with 15 million citizens already blind and another 3.5 million losing their sight each and every year. The cause of this widespread vision loss: cataracts, which are completely treatable through a simple, 15 minute operation.
Through this powerful CSR initiative, RRI will be setting up various free eye camps for Nexus throughout the remote regions of the country where access to quality medical care is scarce. There, we will conduct free vision screenings and provide referrals for those suffering from cataracts to receive free surgery at local hospitals.
With the "Ten in Ten" campaign, not only will the sight of thousands of people in need be restored, but they will, as a result, also be given the opportunity to receive an education, seek gainful employment and become contributing and welcomed members of their communities again.
We are very excited and heartened by this partnership with Nexus, and we're looking forward to designing and implement similar programs with corporations that have the drive and desire to give back.
If you own a business or know of one that may be interested in developing customized legacy or humanitarian solutions which make a positive impact and change lives, please don't hesitate to contact us. We'd love to help you set up your own CSR program so your organization can begin to make a difference!
