Every day, people in the world’s poorest places become needlessly blind because of conditions that can be easily treated, like cataracts. Many women, men and children in poverty have no access to the most basic of eye health services.

Worldwide, an incredible 3 out of 4 people who are blind don’t need to be. And too often, if you live in a poor community, losing your sight also means losing the chance to go to school, live independently or earn a living. For those living on the edge, the impact is devastating - whole families pushed deeper into desperate poverty and hunger.

Your gift, which will be DOUBLED by the UK government, will help people See the Way to a brighter future. Sight-restoring cataract surgery, treatment for a blinding conditions like glaucoma, even a simple pair of glasses can transform the life of someone living in poverty, enabling them to get around safely, go to school, earn a living and support their families.

Until 17th December 2020, your donations to our See the Way appeal will be doubled by the UK government. So your gift could help twice the number of people to See the Way to a brighter future.

The project

Over the 3-year project duration, up to 9,000 blind and severely visually impaired people will regain their sight, through access to quality cataract surgical services. An estimated 100,000 people, mostly from rural communities, will be able to access clinical and other essential eye care services.

Giving people’s sight back will enable improved health outcomes, decreased dependency, improved livelihoods, inclusion in other community development programmes and, therefore, reduced poverty and vulnerability.

Until 17 December 2020, all public donations to our See the Way appeal will be doubled by the UK government.  So every pound you can give will have double the impact – it could fund twice as many sight-saving surgeries, pairs of glasses or eye-health outreach activities in the world’s poorest places. Your donation will help prevent blindness and transform lives wherever the need is greatest. Match funding from the UK government will improve access to sight-saving eye-health services in Malawi.
