If you’ve heard one of our stories on the radio, you’ll know that a small donation can transform a life by providing a sight-saving cataract operation.
With your support, we aim to save over 5,000 people worldwide from a life of blindness, by providing sight-restoring operations through our partnership with Christmas FM.
Pictured above is six year-old Criscent from Uganda. Before his cataract operation he would cling nervously to his parents, unable to see. Thanks to the support of people like you, Criscent can now happily run after a football and continue learning in school. The difference you can make really is huge.
Sightsavers is an international charity working in more than 30 of the world’s poorest countries. With help from partnering organisations we distribute treatments, carry out operations and eye examinations and advocate for people with disabilities.
Right now, 36 million people around the world are blind, but 75 per cent of this can be cured or prevented. Shocked by this? So are we.
You can help us do something about it by donating today.
