Globesight, a leading global development firm working collaboratively with innovative partners to craft solutions to the world’s most pressing social issues, has donated $100,000 to The Reach Campaign. Reach is an awareness and fundraising initiative, which aims to end two neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), river blindness and lymphatic filariasis.
In spirit of charity during the Holy Month of Ramadan, Dubai Autodrome and the Reach Campaign, with support from Emirates Red Crescent, have partnered to raise money to develop prevention and treatment of Onchocerciasis (River Blindness) and Lymphatic Filariasis (LF or Elephantiasis).
The Reach Campaign, a first-of-its-kind fundraising initiative launched in February 2020, has kicked off its second Ramadan campaign. Together with strategic partner Emirates Red Crescent and an active group of founding and supporting partners, the campaign both educates and raises funds for lymphatic filariasis (LF) and river blindness.
L’Occitane and the Reach Fund have joined hands to fight preventable blindness. With every Petit Remedy product sold in the United Arab Emirates, 2 AED will be funding programme fighting the disease. 2 AED can provide the medicine and the treatment to protect 1 person from river blindness for the entire year.
Abu Dhabi – Today the Reach Campaign announced that its Ramadan Challenge exceeded an original fundraising goal of 2 million dirhams. The campaign raised more than 2.8 million dirhams during the Holy Month, which will provide preventative medication for 1.4 million people at risk of river blindness.

Focused on developing, producing and distributing unique premium content to a wide array of demographics across the Arab World, ADM will utilize its distribution channels as well as its network of public figures to amplify the Reach Ramadan Challenge, a month-long campaign aimed at protecting people from river blindness during the holy month.
