Blackwoods partnering with the Fred Hollows Foundation for over a decade




Since 2010, Blackwoods has partnered with The Fred Hollows Foundation to help end avoidable blindness in remote Indigenous communities.

The sale of Blackwood's PROSAFE eye protection products generates donations to the Foundation’s Indigenous Australia Program.

To date, Blackwoods has donated almost 3 million dollars to enable culturally appropriate eye care services for remote and under serviced Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

It’s easy to lose sight of individual stories, but each operation has the power to completely transform someone’s life.

April 9 is Fred’s birthday, and we want to celebrate by giving thanks to the people that further his vision.

To the Blackwoods team members, customers purchasing PROSAFE products, and healthcare professionals on the front line – thank you for your hard work and support.
