Buy one & help save a life: SmartBuy Collection Partners with World Vision

SmartBuy Collection Partners with World Vision
SmartBuy Collection has partnered with World Vision on the Mother & Child Health program in Zambia, which aims to reach more than 40,000 mothers and children over the next three years with life-saving interventions.

Offering everyday eye health care essentials at an affordable price point, SmartBuy Collection is proud to now also help support mothers and children desperately in need. Every eyewear purchase from the SmartBuy Collection, SmartBuy Kids and SmartBuy Readers will now directly contribute funds going to the program. 

The Mother & Child Health program sees aid workers spending up to 15 years in Zambian communities, working with local leaders and families to identify their unique challenges and help develop lasting solutions together. The communities are given ownership of the program and its results to ensure long-term sustainability. 

“We are beyond proud to join forces with World Vision on helping improve the lives of mothers and their children. No mother should have to die in pregnancy or childbirth and no newborn baby should have to die from easily preventable complications”, says Julia Ritchie, SmartBuy Collection brand manager. 

Globally, ten children under 5 years old will die every minute today from preventable causes. That’s more than 5 million children each year. Fifty percent of those young lives are lost in their first week of life. In addition, more than 800 women die every day from complications in pregnancy or childbirth — 99% of them in developing countries. 

“As a brand we believe in providing stylish and affordable eyewear for all. The opportunity to extend this to the health of women and children in Zambia through World Vision is a great initiative”, says Julia Ritchie. 

“We are so excited to partner with SmartBuy Collection”, says Bernadette Martin, Corporate Engagement Manager at World Vision US. “Their support will help us improve the lives of women and children who are most vulnerable, while also bringing awareness to this cause”. 

The program provides life-saving health education and care directly to families in Zambia’s poorest Luwingu district. With proven community-based prevention and treatment interventions, World Vision is able to save the lives of mothers and children and ensure they thrive.
