Weʼre raising £1,500 to provide some of the poorest people in remote villages with medicine & surgeries to cure needless, avoidable blindness.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Did you know that 80% of ALL blindness is AVOIDABLE? In a group pf 100 people, EIGHTY of them can have their blindness cured and have their Eyesight restored - but we need YOUR help!
I'm raising money to be spent in 3 ways across 3 Countries - Mali, Ethiopia and Bangladesh:
To purchase medicine that can cure hundreds of cases of preventable blindness known as River Blindness, Glaucoma, Retinal diseases and Trachoma - the tablets for which can cost as little as 20p.
To pay for Cataract surgeries in children and adults which would totally restore sight, which can cost as little as £25 for an adult and £100 for a child.
To set up outreach camps in remote places that are far from Hospitals providing eyecare, where the poor can bring their loved ones to be screened and hopefully treated.
Not being able to see anybody, or anything - is a lonely, lonely life. But in poor villages like these, being blind or visually impaired, means you can't to go to school and learn to read or write, can't earn a living, won't be considered for marriage, nor live independently. If you could help any blind person, from a child to an elder, you would - and here We have the chance to help hundreds.
Please give as much as you can - knowing that every single penny WILL Make a Difference. It might just be spare change to you, but it could change a blind persons whole life.
