The Rotary Club of Nairobi has run the Kenya Rural Blindness Eradication Project since1985.

During the month of May 2018, Rotary Club of Nairobi will carry out the second Kenya Rural Blindness Eradication eye camp for the Rotary Year 2017/18 (targeting another 200 plus cataract surgeries).

During January 2018, over 216 cataract surgeries took place in Kisumu. This was a three day eye camp. Patients were screened and transported from neighboring towns. They were  accommodated, fed and operated on and thereafter transported safely back to the​ir towns. The surgeries were performed at the Kisumu Oginga Odinga Referral Hospital with patients from Kericho, Kapsabet, Kisii, Siaya, Ahero and Kisumu. The cataract surgeries were performed by Honorary Rotarian Ophthalmologist Dr Mukesh Joshi and his team. Patients were accommodated at Jalaram School.

The eye surgeries performed have led to the restoration of vision to many beneficiaries and this has in turn enabled them to earn a livelihood and leads to a direct positive impact on their immediate families and community, thus leading to economic empowerment (besides the focus area of disease prevention).

In the past 30 years, over 16,000 free cataract operations have taken place by this program by the Rotary Club of Nairobi (RCN).
