Give sight, change a life
Cataracts affect millions of children and adults around the world. Left untreated, they would go blind: forever. But with your help, people living in poverty can get their lives back.

Donate today to gift a lifetime of sight
Millions of people around the world are needlessly blind because they cannot get simple surgery or treatment that could save their sight
Too often, if you live in a poor community, going blind means losing your chance to go to school, earn a living or live independently.
Wakong developed cataracts in both eyes, plunging him into darkness for ten months. Like so many in the poorest places in the world, he could not afford the cost of surgery.
"I can’t see the faces of my youngest grandchildren who spend most time with me. I pray that God restores my vision so I can see the faces of my family members again and also resume working on my rice farm.”
Wakong, Cameroon, Central Africa
People with cataracts can not only lose their sight permanently, they also lose the chance to work, to support their families and see their loved ones.
A simple cataract operation can be truly life-changing. But for thousands of people living in poverty, it is out of reach. You can change that with a donation today.
