“Restoring sight touches all parts of life – health, job secrurity, dignity, and opportunity. It impacts not just one person but entire families and communities. Investing in eye care is one of the most impactful development interventions and I am grateful to be part of such an incredible organization dedicated to this important mission.”
Our eyes truly are miraculous organs. They help us see the world around us, with all its beauty and danger. Indeed, life becomes quite a bit more difficult for us when we lose our eyesight. That’s why it’s important for us to take care of our eyes!
