As little as $25 is all it takes to provide life-changing support to those living with avoidable blindness across the Pacific.

Rex, from Vanuatu, was only 29 when he met our outreach team. He had a very dense cataract in his left eye, reminding us that cataract blindness doesn't just affect the elderly. His cataract made it very hard for him to work and support his wife and two young children.

Thanks to generous donations from people like you, Rex was able to travel to Port Vila and undergo sight-restoring cataract surgery.

The day after surgery, Rex was still worried he would not be able to see. Only when the bandage came off could he be sure. The first emotion we saw was utter relief. Then he threw his head back, took a deep breath and looked up at the sky.

Send someone this card and help to restore sight to someone like Rex.

This card includes Rex's story and a blank page for you to write your own personal message.

Thanks to Specsavers, your card donation will be matched, so your $25 = $50, meaning your donation will have double the impact.

Double your impact

Our charity partner Specsavers are generously matching all donations this year, meaning your purchase of a card, e-card, or donation will have twice the impact. $25 becomes $50. One sight-restoring surgery becomes two.

How your gift helps

In the Pacific, 9 out of 10 people who are blind don’t need to be; their condition is preventable or treatable.

Your gift will help us to not only restore sight, but train local eye health specialists to provide eye care services in their own communities, strengthen local health systems, and support research that will help us to better understand and deliver on current and future eye care needs.
