Register now to join in with Christian Blind Mission Sunday – with your church, you can help people that are living needlessly blind in the world’s poorest places.

Christian Blind Mission Sunday is a unique opportunity for your church to learn about the prevalence of low vision in developing countries, and live out Christ’s love for some of the world’s most marginalised people.

On or around Sunday 13th October, your church can ensure the world’s forgotten people are no longer out of sight, out of mind. Give a talk, hold a collection, or even organise a fundraising event to help people living with low vision.

Order free resources today to help your church learn, pray and give - to transform the lives of those living with needless blindness in the world’s poorest places - register your interest.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind?

People living in developing countries with vision impairment can be out of sight and out of mind: they often face stigma and discrimination as people exclude them from school, work, and participating in their community.

Inspiring, free Christian Blind Mission Sunday resources will help your church to learn, pray and give to ensure no-one living with blindness in the world’s poorest places is out of sight and out of mind.

At the beginning of September, resources will be available to you by post and to download so you can plan a way to get involved that suits your congregation. Something as simple as an extra collection by your congregation could change people’s lives forever.

Allen’s Story

You can enable individuals like 9-year-old Allen from Uganda to realise their full potential as active and accepted members of their communities.

Allen was attacked by other children in her village because of her blindness. They beat her and smeared hot pepper in her eyes. Her mother, Elizabeth, was also ridiculed by other women in their community. But thanks to CBM supporters, Allen has had sight-saving cataract surgery and the future looks much brighter.
