Your $33 gift could give the Miracle of sight to someone as young as Sabina, 9, who had cataracts in both eyes – preventing her from attending school.

Cataract-Sabina (9)

Sabina Darji (9) has bilateral cataracts. She lives with her mother and grandmother in the outskirts of Dharan, a city in Eastern Nepal. Here, Biratnagar Eye Hospital outreach staff Jitendra Ray (in red CBM t-shirt) examines Sabina’s eyes at home before the surgery.

Cataracts are one of the leading causes of blindness in developing countries. Although straightforward to treat, people are living needlessly blind because they can’t afford eyecare and surgery.
