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.

GIVE THE GIFT OF EYESIGHT

Help us to eradicate avoidable blindness in third world countries

 

While the cost of a cataract operation is only £50, more than half of the population of Africa has to survive on a daily income of sixty five pence.

 

For only £50 you can give someone a whole new lease of life; imagine a mother seeing her child for the first time, a child seeing the world for the first time, children able to go to school as they no longer have to act as a full time carer for their blind mother.

 

Every successful cataract operation benefits not only the patient but their entire family and those around them.

 

In 2012 we carried out five hundred cataract operations in Ethiopia, transforming the lives of thousands of impoverished people. This year we aim to carry out five hundred operations in Somalia and five hundred operations in Sudan.
