Leading insurtech company, Virtual i Technologies joins hands with non-profit, Eyes for Africa to ensure that every day, one more person starts to see.
ZURICH, SWITZERLAND, November 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Virtual i Technologies’ corporate social responsibility project, “Today I See”, was launched on 17th November 2021, in support of their non-profit partner Eyes for Africa, which provides ophthalmic treatment as cataract surgeries to people living in Ethiopia who do not have access to standard medical treatments. The launch event was graced by speakers including Veysel Sinan Geylani, Founder and CEO of Virtual i Technologies; Julie Tyers, Founder of Eyes for Africa; and Dr Abu Beyene.
Virtual i Technologies has been in the insurtech ecosystem since 2018, delivering AI-backed technological solutions for insurance underwriting and risk management that help the insurance industry shift from good-faith based decision making to data-driven dynamic decision mechanisms. They provide risk data visibility up to 100%, which has historically been 5%. Virtual i Technologies by carrying and continuing the same goal in this project helps people who are unable to reach enough sources have a chance to sight. “Today I See” was launched to provide medical solutions for cataract surgeries to visually-impaired children, adults, and the elderly in Africa.
Ms Tyers, who has been an ophthalmic nurse for over 40 years, said that “Sight is a right, not a privilege”. Since 2007, she has been instrumental in facilitating sight-restoring surgeries for patients in remote areas of Ethiopia. The main goal of this continued collaboration with Virtual i Technologies is “Every day, one more person starts to see throughout the year.”
Mr Geylani was inspired to extend his core business values to the world to spread love and kindness, to help fellow neighbors. “We do not just let the insurance industry see; we let the world see,'' he explained. Ms Tyers added, “With the collaboration, we can employ 2 local surgeons and purchase another portable ophthalmic microscope. This means 400 people will be able to see.”
Ms Tyers continued, “When you operate on one person, the impact is not only for this one person but the improvement of the whole society – a new future for all these people.” Mr Geylani also explained that their goal is to “ensure that every day, one more person starts to see thanks to the clients, investors, business partners and employees of Virtual i Technologies.”
