Cataracts blind 1 in 20 people in rural Togo, and most have never heard the gospel.
We’re on a mission to change that.
Eye Surgeries Performed
Heard the Gospel
HOW WE GIVE SIGHT:
We are a mobile eye team that travels to rural village clinics in Togo, Africa. These villages have little to no eye care. We do up to 200 eye surgeries a month. Each surgery costs only $150.
You can give sight to one person for $12.50 a month!
Give Sight and Further the Gospel
This is Sollah and he is eighteen years old. Two years ago, he had been asleep in a taxi when an electrical line landed on the vehicle. He awoke with his body burned and blinded by cataracts. When he came to our mobile eye clinic, we were able to restore sight to both of his eyes. He had the sweetest smile on his face when the bandages first came off. Then, soon, he was dancing with joy because he could see again.
This is Ailia and she is eight years old. She had an allergy to dust. Her mother said that she cried everyday because her eyes itched and burned. An allergy to dirt is not a big deal in the United States, but in rural Africa, if this condition went untreated, she could have gone blind. We provided eye drops and eye education to the mother so that this little girl would no longer suffer.
This is Pauline and she is fifty-four years old. She had a cataract in her left eye for three years. She had her own business, but being blind in one eye made it very hard for her to sell merchandise. When she got her sight back through Sight.org, she immediately starting praising God for her sight. Now that she can see again, she can work and take care of herself again.
