Over 3 million children in Pakistan suffer from blindness or visual impairment

  • Blindness is a grave trial for anyone, but in childhood it becomes even bigger
  • A case of blindness makes the whole family less productive since members have to act as caregivers.
  • Blindness usually prevents even the acquisition of basic education and skills, rendering chances of employment very low.


Sight Restoration
  • The good news is that 90% of blindness is curable! Restoring a person’s vision restores their chances of receiving an education, of having a career, and of reaching their potential. Children can study and grown-ups can have careers and fulfilling lives after sight restoration.

  • With a restored vision, individuals would be able to lead enriched lives and achieve normal milestones like getting married, raising families, and being independent.

  • Sponsoring their surgeries would not only restore their vision but change their lives, because a sight saved, is a life saved.

  • After successful treatment children can continue to dream for a bright and empowered future.
