A cataract is a preventable yet prevalent disease of the eye(s) that causes blurry vision and eventually complete blindness. There are currently over 2 million people suffering from cataracts in Africa alone. Malnutrition, hot weather, and climate conditions are just a few factors that can cause a cataract.
Today, you can sponsor a cataract surgery and 10 health checkups for people who live in remote places of Mali. When you sponsor a cataract surgery, you will receive a certificate in your name, in memoriam of someone, or in the name of a loved one as a gift within 15 days!
Giving someone back their sight is the ultimate gift. There are 4,000+ people currently on our cataract surgery waiting list. Many of these people have not seen the faces of their children and struggle daily to lead a fulfilling and productive life.
