This Christmas, give someone who is blind the ability to see!
Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world today. Here in Canada, cataract surgery is covered free of charge by our health care system. For many of the poorest people in the world, however, this simple surgery is too expensive – or simply unavailable.
As a result, people remain blind for years. They stop working. They keep a child or grandchild out of school to act as their guide… whole families sink into deeper poverty and suffering.
This Christmas, you can change all of this for one person blind from cataracts – by giving them the ability to see. One 12-minute, $33 surgery is all it takes to restore sight. With this extraordinary Christmas gift, you’ll return someone’s independence by giving them the ability to see!
