This December we will be partnering with a the charity Sightsavers. Our largest charity partner to date, Sightsavers work in more than 30 countries to eliminate avoidable blindness. We are providing funds to their “Million Miracles” campaign. Every £30 we raised in December will bring a potentially sight-saving operation to someone suffering with cataracts. The £6,407.63 raised will bring this life changing opportunity to 212 people.
This work not only has a profound impact on peoples daily lives. Cataract surgery as been described by the World Health Organisation as one of the most cost effective health interventions in the world. The impact of cataract surgery is enormous; it can lead to increased economic productivity in the first year after surgery equivalent to 1,500% of the cost of the treatment itself.
