There are many reasons children go blind in the world’s poorest countries. Lack of Vitamin A, cataracts, and river blindness are among some of the main causes. Many children also live with extremely low vision…unable to see to walk, read, go to school, or help with household chores. This is sad news.
But, you can help prevent children from going blind for pennies a day!
Today, the World Health Organization includes Vitamin A distribution in its plan to combat childhood diseases. And, vitamins are given to children through local public health programs. Because of these ongoing successful efforts, river blindness and cataracts now are causing more children to go blind than lack of Vitamin A.
You can help us CHANGE this and give children their eyesight back!
Here’s what your spare change can do:
That’s all it takes to help children see!
Thank you so much for your generosity. Please keep these children in your prayers as well. If you have any questions, please contact us.
