1.8 million people have been left visually impaired by trachoma

Blinding trachoma

Trachoma is one of the leading causes of avoidable blindness worldwide. But with the right treatment, this terrible condition can be stopped in its tracks.

Thanks to our family of expert volunteers and partners, thousands of people like Mandido have had their sight saved by surgery, medicine, and education about the disease. But this life-changing work can only continue with your support.

Help us treat more people with trachoma and make avoidable blindness a thing of the past

All donations made until the end of the year will be matched. That means when you fund a trachoma surgery or vital training for an eye surgeon, you’ll change TWICE as many lives.

But hurry – you’ve only got between now and December 31st to make your gift go further.
