Sightsavers, 68 years of sight

Over 250 million people around the world suffer from visual impairment. Out of this huge number, 39 million of them are blind. In all these cases, more than 80% are treatable. The cost of treating these conditions, however, is extremely expensive. Sightsavers, fortunately, has been instrumental in helping all people suffering from visual impairment to get treatment.

The UK based organization has active missions in over thirty countries. The Asian and African countries in Sightsavers partnership against blindness have benefited hugely. As an organization, Sightsavers has over the years trained people for this noble cause. These people include teachers from the communities, volunteers, and more important surgeons. With this important group under Sightsavers, the organization has been able to avert blindness to many people around the world.

In the recent Global Disability summit, Sightsavers was at the center stage for the work in these middle-income countries. With more funding, though, the charity organization can do more. In these countries, people with visual impairment are without a doubt the most marginalized people around the world. Fortunately, more partners are now willing to be part of the £13 million program. The possibility of this project in Nigeria Bangladesh, Kenya, and Uganda is achievable.

The #SeeTheMiracle project in Malawi (in Africa) for example has been a successful project. There are many cases of blindness, especially from cataract. However, due to the financial situation in that country, most cases go untreated. Sightsavers has been fundamental by ensuring that the people suffering from blindness get help. Apart from surgeries that have been successful, the organization has diversified means of reaching to patients owing to the fact that some patients do not seek medical attention. Through vehicles and motorbikes, the efforts of this project have started paying off as more people have access to treatment.

Sightsavers has a diversified way of dealing with blindness. First, the organization gives the needed medical attention to patients depending on the level of the condition. Second, for children with visual impairments, Sightsavers ensures that they have access to special education. For adults, the organization has been keen on ensuring that they are back to productive lives through various programs.
