All Gifts Doubled This Week!

To help Himalayan Cataract Project reach thousands of people with sight-restoring surgeries and essential eye care, a special group of donors will match your gift dollar for dollar this week!

So far we have raised $203,390 towards our $200,000 goal!

Your matched gift will go twice as far to restore sight to patients waiting for care.

Thank you for joining in the fight to end needless global blindness!
