The Sumba Foundation
The Sumba Foundation is deeply committed to lessening the consequences of poverty on the island of Sumba. Our aim is to provide humanitarian aid by fostering village-based projects that impact health (including access and malaria control), education, water and income-generation, while preserving and respecting the fragile culture and traditions of the Sumbanese people.
The Sumba Eye Program is very grateful to Joan Lawrence (now deceased , aunty of Dr Mark Ellis AM) for her considerable donation that enabled the purchase of expensive microscopes and other related equipment as well as all private donors, the local community and other charitable organisations.
