A Warm Welcome


We are planning to provide humanitarian aid by means of eye operations in Togo over the next several years. Togo is among the poorest nations in the world.

A big problem there is cataract, a clouding of the lens, which occurs at any age. This can be operated very well. Regardless of gender, race, skin color, language, religion, political views, national and social origin and ethnicity.

We are personally committed to a strong improvement of the living situation. Through personal contact with Father Théo from Togo, we want to get involved in Africa with an experienced surgical team.

Togo is one of the poorest countries in the world. According to the Human Development Index, Togos situation regarding school formation, life expectancy and wealth is miserable (rank 167 of 189, 31.03.22). Corruption, too, is a huge problem according to the Corruptions Perceptions Index (rank 128 of 180, 31.03.22). The poor local population can be helped a lot with eye operations. An eye operation (cataract) costs about 50 CHF.

Dr. Junghardt has some experience in developing countries, especially in India (Gujarat) and Mexico (Acapulco). In our next humanitarian work we would like to use your valuable support to help the people in Togo for the next 10 years.
