You know how the holidays are filled with joyous music, spreading cheer far and wide? Well, we have a treat for you today! Our youth outreach team in Nepal created a jingle about the importance of eye care. It may not be a familial holiday tune, but it has the same spirit and energy this time of year brings to all of us.

Listen to the full clip and follow along with the translations below:

Sight will make everything clear 

The world is mesmerizing 
Let’s make our vision strong  
Nature is beautiful, let’s appreciate it 
The technology has arrived let’s check our eye sight  
Check your eyes immediately the benefit is yours 
Dreams will come true 
Eyes can shape your life 
You can see too do not lose hope 
Eyes are a sensitive organ of your body  
Sight will make everything clear 
The world is dark without sight 
If a person with blindness gets sight, they will be very joyful 
When you die your eyes will burn with you 
Therefore, I am adding this message to donate your eyes 
How long will people have to walk with their canes and support of others 
I want to walk on my own independently 
Eyes are precious so I will take care of them 
Else I can fall victim to blindness 
Life without sight is sad 
Life without sight is like tea without sugar 
Right to sight is everyone’s right after they are born 
The world is mesmerizing 
Let’s make our vision strong  
Nature is beautiful, let’s appreciate it
The technology has arrived let’s check our eye sight  
Check your eyes immediately the benefit is yours 
Dreams will come true 
Eyes can shape your life 
You can see too do not lose hope 

These young heroes are educating so many in their communities about eye care, transforming lives along the way. And that’s what this time of year is all about – spreading our collective goodness, making others smile, and shaping the world we want to see. 

If you’ve been moved as we are, consider spreading this group’s call to make eye health an important part of everyone’s life even farther this holiday season. When you send your loved ones Seva’s Gifts of Sight this year, you bring life-changing eye care to communities in need around the world. It’s the perfect way to show your friends and family how much they mean to you, while forever transforming someone’s life. 

On behalf of the youth outreach team, we wish you a Happy Holiday!
