Tea Party for Sight

Grab a cuppa, watch a film,
share a story, change a life

But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.Luke 12:13-14

If you are looking for something a little different with your friends or church group, where you can raise funds for children living with avoidable blindness in the world's poorest places while having fun, the Tea Party for Sight is for you!

Inspired by the Parable of the Great Banquet, The Tea Party for Sight can be held safely in person or online, using a video calling platform such as Zoom.

Your chance to change a life

Last year we met Shalom, from Uganda, East Africa.

Shalom went blind at just 5 years old due to cataracts. Her mother, Fridah said that she would sit on the doorstep with her doll and stare into space.

Her eyes were painful in direct sunlight, so she couldn’t play outside with her friends.

Shalom received surgery on her eyes at Mengo Hospital, CBM’s partner in the capital of Uganda. She stayed in hospital for a couple of days, and then returned home with her mother, with eye drops to help her eyes heal.

A couple of months later, Shalom and Fridah returned to Mengo Eye Hospital for her new glasses to be fitted. 

Shalom has now started school and has made many friends. There are such big changes after the surgery: both in her mood and the things she can do.

Shalom is chirpy, confident and happy now she has much improved vision. She can fully participate with helping her mum at home, and doing things for herself such as washing up.

“I have no words to thank you enough. You have given my daughter what I could never giver her without your help. I pray that God bless you. I cannot stop saying thank you.” Fridah said.

There are many more children and adults like Shalom around the world. By hosting a Tea Party for Sight, you can make a real difference to their lives.
