We believe that giving sight to a blind person is the most effective way to relieve suffering, reduce poverty and transform lives. Seva works in 12 of the world's poorest places: Nepal, Tibet, India/China, Africa (Malawi, Madagascar, Zambia, Burundi, and Tanzania), Guatemala, Cambodia, and Egypt.
Since 1982, Seva Canada has helped more that 3.5 million people see again.
In 2012 - 2013, Seva donors helped 764,863 people benefit from accessible eye care services
59,619 people received sight-restoring cataract surgeries, restoring their dignity, productivity, and independence.
A donation to Seva is an investment that will have an impact for decades to come. When you donate you're giving the fishing rod, not just the fish. Seva works with local partners, trains eye specialists and empowers communities to create eye care programs that will serve people both year-round and for generations to come.
Blindness and low vision are global health problems causing untold suffering and costing the world billions annually. But ending avoidable blindness is a solvable problem. 200 million people could see tomorrow if they had access to eye care. A $50 cataract surgery taking 15-minutes will restore sight. A pair of prescription glasses will bring the world into focus.
