Uttam and his daughters need cataract surgeries to see again

Uttam has spent 30 years of his life with severe visual impairment due to cataracts. Now his young daughters are affected too…

YES, I want to offer children and adults the treatment they need to see again, and live life to the fullest:

Give £6 a month to help train surgeons to provide crucial eye operations

Give £12 a month to help fund the equipment and resources needed to offer sight-restoring surgeries

Give £24 a month to help restore sight to someone like Uttam every month

“I have struggled all my life…I must have committed some great sin in my past life that I am suffering so much now.” 

Uttam from Nepal, South Asia has been living with cataracts for a very long time and was ridiculed for his severe sight loss. Tragically both his daughters have developed sight problems as well and the family cannot afford the simple surgery. Living in an extremely poor, remote area of south-eastern Nepal, life is a struggle for Uttam and his family. Uttam with his family in Nepal.

To make ends meet, Uttam worked as a labourer in India but now has to work closer to home so that he can take care of his family.

“As my daughters are visually impaired, I don’t want to leave home for a long time. I need to take care of them. The younger one cannot do anything without her mother.”

Working closer to home comes at a price. Uttam can only earn £3 a day which isn’t sufficient to look after his family, let alone afford cataract surgeries for the three of them.

Although very hard to reach, Uttam’s village is only 25 miles from Biratnagar Eye Hospital, CBM’s partner hospital in Nepal, which receives funding through your gifts to provide sight-saving cataract surgeries. A gift of just £12 a month over a year can bring vision and joy to three people blinded in both eyes, through cataract surgery. 

God loves Uttam and his daughters. Please show your love to them and others like them by giving the gift of sight. With two simple surgeries each, Uttam may be able to get a better job, and his daughter will be able to go to school.

Your regular gift today could provide quality treatment to restore sight.

Jesus asks us to be light-bearers to others. He said, “While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” But he also says to His followers, “You are the light of the world.”
