Sightsavers: Helping People Worldwide Regain Their Sight and Prevent Blindness

Sightsavers is a UK based charity organization dedicated to helping people worldwide regain their sight and prevent blindness. According to Sightsavers 75 percent of all sight loss can be cured or prevented. In many of these cases, the contributing factor is exposure to disease-causing substances either in the water or other ground-based substances. Many rural communities in Africa depend on Community Directed Distributors to administer treatments for the prevention of river blindness and other tropical diseases. Sightsavers places these community-directed distributors (CDD) in rural villages that aren’t served by normal means. Recently in Kaduna, Nigeria, the one billion treatment was celebrated when a young girl received this blindness prevention treatment.

 

The ongoing work of Sightsavers international has helped thousands regain their sight and billions from suffering from blindness. Preventing sight loss is only a part of Sightsavers mission. The employees and volunteers are hard at work fighting for disability rights for those affected by blindness. Sightsavers recently attended the global disability summit sponsored by the UK Department for International Development, the government of Kenya and the International Disability Alliance.

Sightsavers’ goal is the eliminate blindness from avoidable causes. Their success rate and the impact that they have already achieved is noteworthy. Sightsavers also advocates strongly to ensure that blind people have opportunities to grow and contribute to their society. It is important to give people a sense of purpose and direction.

 

Sightsavers currently works in 30 African and Asian countries by supporting local health organizations. Rural communities in Africa benefit greatly from the education and medical treatment. Sightsavers ongoing commitment to strengthen current health organization and work with local communities is admirable. The fact that the work is locally based provides donors with the assurance that their monies are being used with visible results. The joy on the face on someone who has regained their sight says it all.
