New Sight is an international charity working in the town of Ouesso in the Republic of Congo. The charity is registered in the U.K. and in Hong Kong. It previously established a non profit eye clinic based at Pioneer Christian Hospital in another part of the country and was invited by the local authorities to begin a new project in Ouesso. Ouesso is the regional capital of La Sangha region in Congo. It is a strategic location as it is accessible to the whole country as well as to neighbouring Cameroon and Central African Republic.
New Sight has its own plot of land in Ouesso and is preparing the construction of a purpose-built eye hospital. In the meantime, the charity runs an eye clinic in the town to help patients from across the region and country, treating around 200 patients per month. Alongside the clinic, the charity runs a nursing school where local people are trained to provide staffing for the clinic and future hospital. We are also passionate about community health education and screening. The pioneering New Sight team members come from different cultures and backgrounds, and work together to serve our community with roles from administration, engineering, medical to community outreach.
