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 8.3 million cataract operations, and 502,000 operations to treat advanced trachoma. Our donors have also helped us to support more than 289,000 people with disabilities, enabling them to live full and independent lives.

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