Leave a gift in your Will

By including a gift to CBM in your Will, you will reach people whom others leave behind, saving sight, improving health and transforming the lives of people with disabilities.

A gift in your Will can transform lives forever, for people living in some of the world's poorest places, making a difference for generations to come. Gifts in Wills make a huge difference and fund a large part of our life-changing work, and for over 100 years CBM has been building more inclusive communities.
