How you can help

There are so many ways you can help prevent blindness and create brighter futures for people living in poverty.

Join thousands of sight-savers by donating today


All your gifts help to achieve our aim of changing lives for the better.

You’ll be transforming lives

Every gift you give helps change lives for people in the world’s poorest countries. Since our work began, your donations have provided 6.1 million cataract surgeries and 332,000 trachoma operations. Our donors have also helped us to support more than 180,000 people with disabilities, enabling them to live full and independent lives.

We think it’s money well spent, and we hope you do too.
