The CBM partners in developing countries offer preventive, curative, educational and rehabilitative services of high quality. They do help, among other things, to reduce poverty and improve the autonomy of people affected.
In addition, the CBM advocates the inclusion of people with disabilities as equal members in all aspects of social life.

At this point we would like to introduce one of many exciting projects in more detail about our fundraising partner. If the rest of the tour permits, BABA will go visit this aid project.
As this is yet in German let me explain it a bit to you. How an eye-surgeon started out of his privately run hospital with a day of surgey for the poorest in Paraguay, thta could never have afforded proper treatment at their own cost. Eventually he changed his medical orintaion fully towards those , that in a regula setup would never benefit from his surgical skills. A story written by life itself and the great heart of Dr. Rainald Duerksen in Asuncion, the Capital of Paraguay, who in 1999 founded the "Fundacion Vision"about everybodies right to see the world with his own eyes.
