This project will give the gift of SIGHT to 1030 poor blind children in Pakistan who suffer from curable blindness due to Cataract. 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 $97 to LRBT- the largest free eye trust with 18 hospitals and 53 clinics. project reportread updates from the field

Pakistan is a male dominated society where women have last call on family resources. Their healthcare needs have lesser priority and as 2/3rds of the population lives around the poverty line there is never any money to get them treated. Conscious of this LRBT has in its 28 years of operations focused especially on female blindness treating 13 million women which has significantly reduced the extent of female blindness. Still there are approx. 9.6 million poor blind/visually impaired women. project reportread updates from the field
