UPDATE: Thanks to your incredible generosity, we have now doubled as many gifts as we can. We of course welcome additional donations, but these will be at face value. Thank you once again for your amazing support.

As part of our School Health Integrated Programme (SHIP), we’ve been training teachers to screen children for vision problems at school and donating glasses when needed. With your help, we can do so much more.

Zill is 10 years old and lives in Islamabad with his family. He loves playing sports and learning maths. He noticed he was having trouble reading some of the words on the board in class.

“I sit in the second row and could only read when words were written in large letters in the book or on the board but when written in the small size then I faced problems reading. I also had trouble playing cricket which made me feel angry and I felt like crying, and sometimes the other children laughed at me.” he tells Sightsavers.

“I had never had an eye test before, but when my teacher screened my eyes I learned I had an issue with my vision and this was why I was having problems, and she told me that I needed glasses. When I told my parents, they said it’s a good thing. I hope the glasses will help me perform better in exams, Inshallah.”

Please, will you help restore a child’s sight, independence and future?

I would like to make a
one-off
donation to Sightsavers:

When doubled, this could help provide 12 vision assessment eye charts.

When doubled, this could help screen 90 children for a range of eye conditions.

When doubled, this could help pay for two children to have a sight-saving cataract operation
