Today, you can help a person see the beautiful the world we live in!
Approximately 2.2 million people suffer from cataracts in Africa, and 800,000+ suffer from the eye disease in Mali alone. While we performed 34,000 cataract surgeries, of which, 3,000 were sponsored by our generous donors like you, there are still 4000+ people waiting in our Cataract Surgery Waiting List who live in extreme poverty and needs your help.
A cataract is a progressive disease of the eye(s) that causes severe blurry or discoloured vision which can lead to complete blindness if not treated properly. It interferes with daily activities and can cause a person to have to re-learn tasks such as how to navigate around their home and village, eat, wash themselves, take care of their families, and live a fulfilling life.
Cataract surgery costs $100, which covers the cost of the health screenings for ten other people. If you’re able, we’d love it if you could make a donation of $100 to help us achieve our mission and give the ultimate gift of sight to someone living in darkness. Even if not, any amount would help us at our mission.
