You can help reach more people like Paul

Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness around the world. In the poorest countries, people cannot afford treatment, and need your help.

Please give the gift of sight today and help to free people who are trapped in a cycle of poverty and disability.

When Paul became blind, his family urged him to sell their cow in order to pay for travel and treatment. The decision of whether to throw your family into deeper poverty, or accept a future of blindness is a decision no one should have to make.

But that’s the decision facing thousands of people today.

In poorer countries, only half the number of people who need cataract surgery receive it. People should be able to receive healthcare, no matter where they are born.

We can make sure that people do not have to choose between feeding their family, and having their sight restored.

Together, we can reach more people like Paul to enable them to see
their loved ones again, like his granddaughter pictured above, and regain their independence.

Thank you.

 

Paul's Story

Watch Paul’s incredible journey from blindness to sight.

“The darkness is gone. The mist is all gone and I now don’t have to worry about bumping into things… I don’t see the blinding light anymore. It feels normal to now sit outside and see what is happening around the house… It all feels new.”

Paul, after he received cataract surgery

With your help, we can make sure that cataract surgery is available to more people.

Remember – for every person you help, you’re also helping their family members and neighbours. Your gift is a gift for everyone.
