Healthy vision is vital to healthy aging.

Millions of people could be cured of blindness if they had access to care.

Chamsuri, a once vital and active grandmother in Nepal, went blind from cataracts.

Before, her family had depended on her, now she depended on them.

And because they lived in poverty in a low-income country, access to eye care was beyond their reach. 

Then Seva Canada donors restored her sight.

Now she can see and be independent.

She can care for herself and her grandchildren.

Her family doesn’t have to worry that she will stumble and fall.

She can age with dignity and joy.

90% of people with treatable blindness live in low-income countries.

This holiday season, you can give the gift of sight for just $50. Donate by December 31st and double your impact!
