IT company Cantel has pledged to help save sight and improve access to education as part of its new corporate partnership with Sightsavers.
Cantel is based in the UK and delivers IT services and maintenance in Europe, Asia, Africa and North and South America.
Staff at Cantel will be raising funds for Sightsavers’ work in Africa and Asia to provide eye tests and sight-saving treatments including medication and surgery. They will also be supporting our disability rights work through our education and social inclusion programmes.
Cantel commercial director Richard Cusworth said: “We chose Sightsavers for a number of reasons, including the wish to restore sight to as many people as possible. After learning more about Sightsavers, we understand that Sightsavers not only funds sight-saving operations in countries with little to no social care, but it also helps educate people by supporting inclusive education and funding development programmes.”

Every time someone buys a pair of glasses from Dime Optics, their purchase will help support Sightsavers’ eye health work.
The charitable foundation is raising £35,000 for Sightsavers’ work in Pakistan through its Sprint for Sight campaign.
