Summary

This project will give the gift of SIGHT to the poor blind children in Pakistan who suffer from curable blindness. The only issue is they can either not access or afford the treatment and turn needlessly blind. Blindness is in itself a stark reality but childhood blindness is worse as the number of years ahead are much more. The good news is that their vision can be restored by donating only $85 to LRBT- the largest free eye trust with 17 hospitals and 52 clinics. Help us help them!

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Unfortunately, for almost 3 million children in Pakistan, these snapshots of life remain undeveloped negatives; shrouded in darkness. They suffer from blindness or impaired vision - conditions that could easily have been prevented or cured. The sad fact is that 80% of blindness is curable. Cataract - the most common cause of blindness can mostly be cured by a simple operation costing LRBT on average $85.

How will this project solve this problem?

Through this project LRBT will give the gift of Sight to 200 poor blind children All services at LRBT are offered totally free so that no man, woman or child goes blind merely because they cannot afford the treatment. We provide state of the art eye care. LRBT provides the most comprehensive paediatric eye-care, ranging from Performing Cataract Surgeries,School Screening Programmes to paediatric speciality clinics which deal with everything from low vision to the most advanced corneal transplant
