You can’t choose where or when you’re born, and you can’t choose how long you’ll live – but you can choose to leave something in your will that can help change the world for the better.

Sightsavers is already well on the way to eliminating the painful and treatable disease trachoma for good; the next few years will be crucial in meeting this extraordinary goal, and you’re vital to helping us achieve it. Our big plans rely a lot on the generosity of people like you leaving a legacy to Sightsavers.

After you’ve taken care of your nearest and dearest in your will, we’d be very grateful if you’d consider including Sightsavers too. A huge amount of our life-changing work is accomplished thanks to people like you.


All your gifts help to achieve our aim of changing lives for the better.

You’ll be transforming lives

Every gift you give helps change lives for people in the world’s poorest countries. Since our work began, your donations have provided 6.1 million cataract surgeries and 332,000 trachoma operations. Our donors have also helped us to support more than 180,000 people with disabilities, enabling people to live full and independent lives.

We think it’s money well spent, and we hope you do too.
