Unite For Sight

I just wanted to introduce everyone to one of my favorite charities: Unite For Sight. They provide sight restoring surgeries and eye care to patients in Africa, India etc. who live in extreme poverty.

According to their FAQ section:

“I don’t have much money. Can I still help?

Yes! The average cost of a cataract surgery is $50 at Unite For Sight’s partner eye clinics. Small donations of even $10 or $20 make great impacts on the lives of patients living in extreme poverty. Larger donations make a very significant difference to the patients whose eye care you sponsor.”

I feel that if for such a small amount of money, we could give someone’s sight back, then it’s certainly worthwhile. Moreover, I like that:

“100% of all donations go to providing eye care for patients living in extreme poverty, and the 0.9% of total costs that are administrative costs or general expenses is funded by other sources.”

Unite For Sight

Eyes so bright

Let the blind

Cast woe behind

And open eyes

To wondrous light!
