But my visual impairment makes me, perhaps, more aware of what it can be like not to see well, or at all. That's why I support Sightsavers. Sightsavers performs vision restoring cataract surgery in impoverished countries. This is surgery that we take very much for granted in the West. In fact, I had a cataract removed from one of my eyes (formed after treatment for an eye injury) so I know how simple this surgery can be.
See how Sightsavers is saving vision and making lives better here. This Malawian grandfather gets to see his tiny grandson for the first time. http://millionmiracles.org/location/malawi/
Forty-eight pounds could give a child back her sight. Ninety-six pounds could restore sight for three adults. If you live in the UK, the UK government will match your contribution until December 31st. (Of course you can donate less. The smaller donations will add up!)
