Help us create a world in which no one is needlessly blind

A $25 donation can provide the material cost of one sight-restoring surgery!!

Why Blindness

Globally, more than 43 million people are blind. Ninety percent of these people live in low- and middle-income communities where access to eye care is limited and the challenges for those who can’t see are severe.

But there is hope – 80% of this burden is treatable or preventable.

HCP Cureblindness is working to eradicate avoidable blindness in under-resourced areas of the world by helping people retain and regain their sight.
