Dr Theophile's outreach experience

Dr Theophile Tuyisabe, surgeon from Kabgayi Eye Unit, describes witnessing the impact of sight-saving cataract surgery for one mother, and her joy at being able to see how much her son had grown!


Avoidable blindness traps millions of men, women and children worldwide. Shockingly, cataracts cause around half of all blindness - even though they are simple and inexpensive to treat.

But for people living in poverty, this is out of reach. They simply cannot afford the sight-saving treatment they desperately need.

This Easter, there is good news: your donation will be doubled

Every £1 you donate up to a fantastic £75,000, given before 28th April, will be doubled, so you can transform twice as many lives.

When Jesus rose and Mary found the empty tomb, she ran away in the light of a new dawn, eager to share the good news.

Will you gift someone their sight and the joy of a new dawn today?

For every £1 raised before 28th April, a generous group of CBM supporters will give £1 to fund sight-saving work and other programmes supporting some of the world’s forgotten people living in poverty up to £75,000.

Your donations will support CBM’s work preventing blindness and transforming lives wherever the need is greatest.
