CBM Annual Report 2023:

379 aid projects in 40 countries


In 2023, CBM supported 62.2 million people in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Together with our partners, CBM reached around 62.2 million people in 2023. Of these, 10.4 million people received comprehensive assistance through various services, including medical treatment, rehabilitation measures, education, livelihood security and emergency aid. That is 1.6 million more than in the previous year. This comprehensive approach demonstrates the tangible difference CBM makes in people’s lives.

CBM’s work was made possible with funding support from strong partners. Of the 379 projects, 107 were co-financed by public donors, increasing the support provided by CBM severalfold.

These include the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. The German Federal Foreign Office, The Lions Foundation Germany (Stiftung der Deutschen Lions), the European Union, the United Nations and the United States Agency for International Development.

Additionally, The END Fund,  Sightsavers, Accelerate donor consortium (funding managed by Sightsavers), ARISE funding consortium (funding managed by the END Fund), The Task Force for Global Health, Waldesian Church, and Fondation Assistance Internationale supported our NTD. 

To implement the projects, CBM works with 257 partner organisations, tailoring interventions to local conditions and providing skills development and infrastructure support.

Recognised by the WHO and with consultative status at the UN, CBM is committed to the "2030 IN SIGHT" strategy for global access to eye care by 2030.
