Miracles funded


What is A Million Miracles?

A Million Miracles is Sightsavers’ biggest ever campaign to support the work we do. The campaign aims to fund one million operations that will restore, save and protect people’s sight in some of the poorest parts of the world. A sight-saving operation costs £30 which means to reach our goal we need to raise £30 million by 2017.

Sightsavers works in some of the poorest countries to eliminate avoidable blindness and, where blindness is irreversible, we work to promote equality and ensure people with disabilities have the same opportunities in life as anyone else.

Your donation will help make this happen. Whether it’s funding the operation itself, getting someone to a doctor, giving children with visual impairments an education, providing support to families affected by blindness – by giving your support today you’re changing people’s lives.
