Sightsavers’ mission is to prevent avoidable blindness and fight for disability rights. Find out where we work, how we’re run and what we do with the money we raise.
Sightsavers is an international development charity working in 30 countries across Africa and Asia to prevent blindness and strengthen local health systems.
We work in low and middle income countries to treat and prevent eye conditions such as cataracts, trachoma and refractive error.
How we protect sight
We help to fight five debilitiating diseases, known as neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), that affect more than a billion people worldwide.
Our work to fight disease
We campaign to make sure people with visual impairments or other disabilities can participate equally in society without fear of discrimination.
