Key messages & objectives

Our priority is to find young children going blind from cataracts and provide corrective surgery, enable children needing glasses to stay in education and help adults going prematurely blind so that they can continue to work and provide for the family.

Join our vision for Bangladesh

We are funded entirely by donations and every penny goes towards helping someone improve, retain or regain their eyesight.

800,000 people are suffering with unnecessary blindness in Bangladesh,

40,000 of these are children.

75% of this blindness is treatable. 

80% of the population live in remote rural villages where healthcare for children is rare.

Early surgical intervention is crucial to prevent irreversible blindness.

 

We can help this, but so can you.
