All donations made to this appeal will be matched by the UK government, pound for pound, up to £2 million. We hope that knowing your gift will go twice as far this Easter will inspire you to give – because there are so many children who desperately need your help.
Aid Match gives you, our supporters, an amazing opportunity to double the impact of your gift, enabling us to help twice as many people. With your help, community health workers can give families the antibiotics they need to get better, as well as giving advice about trachoma and how to stop it spreading.
Donate between 15 February and 15 May and your donation will be doubled by the UK government. Any regular donations set up within the appeal window will be matched for the first three months, and any additional amount donated on top of existing regular donations will also be matched.
Your donation will be used to support our work wherever the need is greatest. The matched funds raised through UK Aid Match will support our work to prevent and treat blinding trachoma in Tanzania.
Eliminating trachoma will transform the lives of some of the most marginalised people in Tanzania. This project will work to restore, save and protect people’s sight in an inclusive and accessible environment. By working with local communities, we will create positive and lasting change to eye health in the areas in which we work. Our focus will specifically target and involve people with disabilities, women and older people.
Those who have their sight restored will be able to return to their day-to-day activities, including employment, farming, childcare and social activities, which will help to secure their income and improve their family and community life.
