28 November 2023 is Giving Tuesday, the international day of giving after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Today, a generous group of donors will be matching donations. Your gift and its impact can be doubled!*
By donating on Giving Tuesday 2023, you can help us reach more children like seven-year-old Prodinah (pictured above), whose world was blurry because of cataracts. Her vision was so poor that she struggled at school and couldn’t be left alone because she would often get lost.
All Prodinah needed was a straightforward operation. The generosity of supporters like you means Prodinah received a sight-saving cataract operation. The change could be seen instantly: she became a happier and more independent child.
Sightsavers’ regional director for West Africa, Fatoumata Diouf, dreams of leaving conditions like cataracts in the past, so children like Prodinah aren’t at risk of sight loss that could destroy their future. “As a mother, it breaks my heart that children cannot access education because of sight loss and other disabilities,” she says. Watch our video below to see Fatoumata’s Giving Tuesday message.
However, there are children who still urgently need treatment before it becomes too late to restore their sight.
By doubling your donationon* Giving Tuesday 2023, you could help us reach more children like Prodinah. Will you help transform the life of a child with cataracts?
*Donations made to our Giving Tuesday campaign will be doubled, up to a maximum of £50,000. New regular donations made through the Giving Tuesday campaign will be doubled for the first year. Any donations made after the maximum amount has been reached will count towards the campaign total but will not be doubled. Sightsavers reserves the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time.
Please note, the match funding target has been reached. Any donations made now will go towards the campaign total but will no longer be doubled. Sightsavers reserves the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time. Thank you so much for your support this Giving Tuesday!
