Sightsavers

Sightsavers prevent avoidable blindness in some of the poorest parts of the world by diagnosing and treating conditions such as cataracts. We’re also fighting to eliminate debilitating neglected tropical diseases such as trachoma and river blindness.  We promote equal opportunities for people with disabilities so everyone has the chance to learn, earn and be happy. We provide vocational training, help children with disabilities to go to school, and campaign to raise awareness of disability rights
