Sightsavers, supported by the UK government, is hosting a photo exhibition on London’s South Bank to mark the final stage of the Million Miracles appeal, which aims to fund a million sight-restoring cataract operations.

A series of striking photographs of Sightsavers’ work in Pakistan, taken by photographer Andrew McConnell this summer, are on show at the More London Riverside development near Tower Bridge.

The photographs explore the stories of three individuals – Kausar, Murtaza and Zammurad – whose lives have been transformed by cataract surgery.

The free exhibition runs until 29 October and marks the final push of Sightsavers’ Million Miracles appeal to restore the sight of a million people with cataracts across Africa and Asia.

All donations to the appeal will be matched pound for pound by the UK government through the UK Aid Match scheme.

The exhibition is fully accessible for those with visual impairments and features braille captions alongside all photographs. Visitors and passers-by are also able to give a one-off donation to Sightsavers via text message.

For a preview of the exhibition, see our photo gallery below.
