Milla Sunde and Tom Bevan established [ The Green Children Foundation] to support microcredit, education and healthcare. In 2006, [ The Green Children] shot a music video in Bangladesh to celebrate the work of Professor Muhammad Yunus, the father of microcredit and founder of The Grameen Bank.

The Green Children raised $500,000 for one of the first eye hospitals in rural Bangladesh. The hospital was opened on the 12th of May 2008 by The Green Children and Prof. [Muhammad Yunus] . The hospital will perform thousands of cataracts operations on the blind of Bangladesh. Prof. Yunus initiated this project with Grameen to save the sight of many of his countrymen and women.

The hospital will work towards serving 50,000 people a year, 10,000 of which will receive the vital cataract operation and escape from a life of blindness.

The Green Children are planning to support a second eye hospital in Bangladesh.
