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.
Yudaya is 70. She developed cataracts in both eyes and now is forced to sit alone all day. Like so many in the poorest places in the world, she could not afford the cost of surgery.
"Women of her age are busy enjoying their old age, they go to the farm, they have fun seeing their grandchildren play. She cannot do any of these; there are great-grandchildren she has never seen... It hurts me too.”
Yudaya's grandson Ahmed, Uganda, East 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.
