Part of Overseas Aid
Sightsavers saves sight and changes lives in over 30 countries in the developing world. With the help of our supporters, we provide specialist treatments and eye care to improve eye health and prevent sight loss.
We work with partners locally to restore sight to hundreds of thousands of people every year who are needlessly blind through cataracts. Blindness combined with poverty can be a dangerous combination, as the loss of sight can make earning a living even more challenging, sometimes impossible. Our work helps to give people a brighter future, free from the threat of blindness.
We also support people who are irreversibly blind by providing education, counseling and training. This area of our work helps to give people the skills and confidence they need to lead a more independent life.
We help the people who need it most – those living in poverty in some of the world’s poorest countries. With your help, we can give the precious gift of sight to more people in need.
