This endeavour will be the next step towards strengthening and sustaining their CSR initiative.

"We play a bigger role when it comes to CSR. The joint venture partnership with So Others May See Inc. (SOMS) is expected to have lasting impact on children and Etisalat hopes to continue and expand this CSR initiative by extending the program to all parts of Sri Lanka," Etisalat, Chief Commercial Officer Yasser Aboulamayem said.

Sri Lanka has a population of 20 million of which approximately 400,000 suffer from low vision.

Of these, around 200,000 people are believed to be blind. Refractive errors, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and blindness in children are the other causes of vision impairment.

The majority of them are blind due to cataract. Although most cases of cataract are related to the aging process, occasionally children can be born with the condition or a cataract may develop following eye injuries, inflammation or some other eye diseases.
