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.”
Thus, if anyone is interested, check out their website here:

Eyes so bright
Let the blind
Cast woe behind
And open eyes
To wondrous light!
