World Sight Day | Oct 8, 2015

news | Oct 06, 2015

It's time to address the crisis in eye health.

Thursday, October 8, 2015 is World Sight Day.

You can help bring awareness to the issue of global blindness.

It can be as simple as sharing our stories and browsing our website to learn more about the Himalayan Cataract Project and our mission to eradicate preventable and curable blindness in the developing world. Find out how an innovative surgery that takes less than 10 minutes and costs $25 can bring someone who is living in darkness back to light.

Every action, whether it's generating awareness or donating will make a difference. Every dollar spent on improving eye health in developing countries generates a four fold return on investment. (Source: The Fred Hollows Foundation and PwC, 2013)
