Vision Restored - And Matching $$ June 12!

Dear Friends, 

This is just a really quick note to let you know about two things. 

First, to tell you a quick story. The picture you are seeing here is of Dominga, one of our long-standing diabetes patients (she's given me permission to tell her story). Dominga has had diabetes for a long time, but she spent almost 10 years looking for a medical home before she found us. She has kidney problems as a result of her diabetes, and she has also had life-threatening foot infections. However, we've been able to help her through all of this, thanks to your help. This photo was taken just before a routine surgery for diabetes-induced cataracts. She's back home and seeing better than she has in 20 years. Thank you so much for making this program a possibility!

Second, I wanted to let you know that GlobalGiving is having a Matching Funds Campaign on June 12. Because we are a "Superstar" ranked organization, this means that all donations to any of our projects on June 12 will be matched 50%! You can see the list of all of our current projects here. Pass the link on to your friends and colleagues!

Thanks as always for your amazing support and interest in our work.
