Sightsavers Reports

You can help us reach more children like Nadir this Ramadan

April 2018

Help more children like Nadir now


Sightsavers transforms lives around the world by preventing avoidable blindness and restoring sight. Thanks to generous donations from people like you, we’re able to treat children like Nadir. But there are still countless people living in poverty who are at risk this Ramadan.

Three-year-old Nadir is from Bangladesh and was born with congenital cataracts in both his eyes. Nadir’s parents were desperately worried for his future, and feared he might miss out on an education if he went blind.

Thanks to supporters like you, Nadir received his cataract operation at a Sightsavers-funded hospital and his life has been totally transformed. He is now free to run around his village and play like any other child, and he’s looking forward to starting school and getting an education.

So please, will you donate this Ramadan and help us reach more children like Nadir?
