Children such as Asha, Ismail and Enoch, who you may have seen on TV recently, have cataracts. This small build-up of protein may not seem urgent, but if left untreated it can cause irreversible blindness. So for these children it is a race against time to operate before their sight is lost forever.

And others such as Rukkaya, Maniru and Aisha are suffering from trachoma. This excruciating disease causes the eyelashes to turn inwards and scrape away at the eye’s surface. Many resort to pulling their eyelashes out – even after the disease has caused them to go blind– to help stop the endless pain of blinking.

This is heartbreaking, and it’s happening right now to millions of children in some of the world’s poorest countries. But with your help, these children could receive the straightforward treatments they need to protect their sight, giving them a much brighter future.

Please donate today: all donations from UK residents to our Million Miracles appeal will be matched by the UK government, pound for pound, until 9 January so your gift will go even further.

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.

You’re doing something amazing
