Involved in the fight against avoidable blindness since 2006, the Foundation continues its commitment to supporting research. Last April 5, the L'OCCITANE Foundation awarded the L’OCCITANE Sight Award of 50,000 Euros to Clare Gilbert, a Professor of International Eye Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and an expert on the epidemiology of blindness in children.

The ceremony was organized in partnership with the International Council of Ophthalmology at the World Ophthalmology Congress in Tokyo. With such an award, Claire Gilbert intends to carry out three research projects on the ocular health of schoolchildren and their teachers in Bangladesh. The goal? To help organizations supporting eye health programs in schools around the world by providing new research. Such fine goals in sight!
