Good Shepherd Hospital, through funds committed by the Ministry of Health, pays most salaries of the eye clinic staff. Funding for the day-to-day expenses is partly from Hope & Healing (formerly CBM) and partly from patient fees for services.
Hope and Healing is an international Christian development organisation, committed to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities in the poorest countries of the world. Hope and Healing has hugely helped the Good Shepherd Eye Clinic (GSHEC) to grow and innovate during the last 25 years through their generous donations.

Poor Patient Fund
For poor patients the GSHEC has a Poor Patient Fund. This is a special fund that is used when poor patients can not afford their treatment. Many individuals, as well as Lions International and MTN Swaziland have contributed to this fund. Other donors have assisted with capital items such as buildings and equipment.
