Since Sightsavers began, we’ve helped to provide 6.9 million sight-saving cataract operations and have distributed more than a billion treatments to protect people against neglected tropical diseases such as trachoma and river blindness. We have ambitious plans for the future – and your support can help us achieve them.
Our work relies on the generous support of the public. Your support will have a huge impact: it could ensure blind children get the education they deserve, or could restore the sight of those who thought they would never see again.
Your gift will help lift people out of the cycle of blindness and poverty.
