OPEN YOUR EYES SO THEY CAN SEE
Millions of people are unnecessarily living without sight
In third world countries, one person every five seconds and one child per minute becomes blind.
In countries such as Niger, Chad, Mali, Burkina Faso and Ethiopia, one in four children lose their sight when they reach the age of five. One doctor is responsible for approximately forty thousand people; millions of people die without ever seeing a doctor in their lifetime.
Half of the twelve million blind people in Africa suffer from cataract disease; only five hundred out of every one million cataract patients currently receive treatment.
