This project will give the gift of SIGHT to 5000 poor blind children in Bangladesh 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 $82 to DDEF-the largest free eye trust with 1 hospitals and 2 Eye clinics in Bangladesh
