Uber, the world’s largest mobility company, has set up a free week-long eye check-
up camp for nearly 1,000 driver-partners in Dhaka. This initiative is a part of Uber’s recently launched
Road Safety campaign in Bangladesh, reiterating the company’s #SafetyAtHeart commitment.
Nearly 50% of the people providing transport services in Bangladesh suffer from eyesight problems, and
only a handful get proper treatment, according to a BRAC study. The eye check-up camp has been
organised at the Green Light Center of Uber in Uttara, in collaboration with Vision Aid Foundation, an
NGO that works for social well-being.
“Good vision is a must for safe driving, and with this initiative we wish to make eye care facilities more
accessible to driver partners on our platform.” said Zulquar Quazi Islam, Lead, Uber Bangladesh. “Safety
is a top priority at Uber, and we are determined to provide better on-road safety solutions to driver
partners on our platform,” he added.
Taufique Mohiuddin, Chairman, Vision Aid Foundation said, “Good eyesight is fundamental to safe
driving, and the lack of same can have consequences. It is an important issue, and we are glad to be
collaborating with Uber on this.”
Promoting on-road safety is a top priority in Uber’s month-long Road Safety campaign. The campaign is
designed to raise public awareness around the need for road safety, and sensitise driver partners and
riders about road safety best practices.

we're building products to get people closer to where they want to be. By changing how people, food,
and things move through cities, Uber is a platform that opens up the world to new possibilities.
