Support World Sight Day 2017

 

Every morning we wake up and see the world as we know it. We go through our usual routine and head off into another day. For most of us it means a trip to another day.

Try this: imagine your most vivid childhood memory. Now imagine it again if you hadn't been able to see. For over 100 million people around the world are blind or severely visually impaired by cataracts, that's not a bad dream, it's every day.Imagine if you had cataracts. You can't read or write because everything is a blur, and even leaving home can be dangerous.  But there's hope! Cataracts can be cured by a low-cost, effective treatment.

HelpMeSee is committed to ending the global health crisis of cataract blindness. We are training surgeons around the world to restore sight of people in poverty areas. As the #World Sight Day is coming , we would like to take this opportunity to raise awareness for the cataract patients around the world. Today we are celebrating the unique gift of sight while we could also help someone leave the darkness and SEE AGAIN!
