Mozambique

Cataracts account for 80 per cent of blindness in the world, but they can be treated. In Mozambique around 825,000 people are visually impaired and approximately 180,600 are blind. Many of the conditions that cause blindness are completely avoidable.

A Million Miracles is working to fund sight-restoring operations in some of the world’s poorest countries. Read about some of the people in Mozambique working tirelessly to make sure people get the treatment they need and the people whose lives – with your support – they are changing.

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 for an adult costs £30 which means to reach our goal we need to raise £30 million by the end of 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.

The matched funds raised through UK Aid Match will support our projects in Pakistan and Bangladesh.
