Cataract is responsible for 51% of world blindness.
An estimated 5 million people are blinded by cataract each year. Blindness affects more than 4% of the population in parts of sub-Saharan Africa. With your support, we are declaring a fight against cataract in sub-Saharan Africa.
Our missions are uncomplicated, but their impact on individuals, families and communities is staggering. Each successful operation means independence, freedom of movement, working and seeing the faces of the family again.
