Give a child sight

Every day, children around the world are going blind from eye conditions or diseases that are easily preventable.

You can help stop this.

Children such as Archana, Payal, and Sanjit, who you may have seen on TV recently, have cataracts.

This small build-up of protein may not seem urgent, but if left untreated it can cause irreversible blindness. So for these children it is a race against time to operate before their sight is lost forever.

And others such as Maniru, Pumelo and Rukkaya, are suffering from blinding trachoma.

This excruciating disease causes the eyelashes to turn inwards and scrape away at the eye’s surface. Many resort to pulling their eyelashes out – even after the disease has caused them to go blind – to help stop the endless pain of blinking.

This is heartbreaking, and it’s happening right now to millions of children in some of the world’s poorest countries.

But with your help, these children could receive the straightforward treatments they need to protect their sight, giving them a much brighter future.

Eye health screenings

Community eye screenings help us reach children in some of the most remote areas. A health worker will check each child's eyes to see if they need treatment.

Life-changing surgery

Operations to treat cataracts and trachoma can take less than an hour. Your donations can help us to train eye doctors and health workers, and pay for operations.
