HOW WE GIVE SIGHT:
We take our mobile eye clinic into remote villages in Togo, Africa. These villages have little to no medical care. We do up to 50 eye surgeries a month. Each surgery costs only $150.
You can give sight to one person for $12.50 a month!
I was blessed (because I live in the U.S.A.) to have just had cataract surgery in both eyes. I no longer have to wear glasses! It was a miracle for me. I donated to Sight.org because I felt it was right to help those with blindness in Togo, that they should have the same opportunity as I did.Jan Widner
There isn’t another organization I have partnered with that so readily uses their resources and has such a profound impact on people’s lives as Sight.org. For the money, I don’t know of a larger impact that can be made than that of taking someone from blind to sight. Where else can someone put $150 and radically change the course of someone’s life. When you partner with Sight.org it impacts someone in a real, tangible, and profound way within weeks.Tim Lamonte
One of the things that maintained my interest in supporting Sight.org is the holistic approach it has taken, including partnership with the local community and government, training for farmers to reduce malnutrition (which impacts eye health) and sharing the gospel. In addition to the eye care provided by Sight.org, I believe these other items are just as critical to creating long-lasting impact in countries like Togo. I feel blessed to play a small role in all the good work Sight.org is doing.Bethany McGaha

Blinded by Electricity
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. The local hospital was able to treat all of his burns (which we could see from his head to toes) but they did not have the ability to treat his eyes. His father heard that Sight.org was in the village of Amlame, so he brought him to our mobile eye clinic. The next day, our amazing medical team did bilateral cataract surgery and was 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.
No Longer Suffering
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. We had 46 people waiting in line for eye surgeries, but our medical director said this little girl was our first priority. 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.
Praising God for Sight
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.
Sight.org Stories of Life Change
All people are redeemable through Christ’s finished work on the cross, and we believe He died so that we could carry His light to the ends of the earth.
By His grace, we have been redeemed to bring light to
the BLIND, the UNREACHED, and the MALNOURISHED in Togo, Africa.
