Technology allows us to look inequity in the eye and level the playing field. When combined with compassion, it transforms the lives of people thousands of miles away with a simple click of a button.
Sadly, vision impairment continues to rob millions of people every year of a promising future. At Seva we know that this is a solvable public health crisis. 90% of all vision loss is preventable and treatable. Our research validates that investing in eye health improves overall wellbeing, community participation, and economic outlook for families.
Sight changes everything. For Numali Saikia, a loving mother in India (pictured above), the gift of sight allowed her to return to daily activities, supporting her family, and living her life with confidence. Today she can be found motivating others in need from her community to seek out Seva-supported eye care services. If you are able, your fiscal year-end gift today can make the same difference for many others around the world.
Over decades, with trusted partners, Seva has taken informed risks to launch, scale, and grow our ecosystem of sustainable eye care services to deliver on our promise of transforming lives through restoring sight. Thanks to your support, last year we reached over 2.8 million people. These are 2.8 million worlds that you renewed with wonder, hope, and possibilities. Thank you for creating a better world one person at a time.
Yours in gratitude,
