Why give?

Giving Sight opens up a world of opportunity

Imagine not being able to see, simply because you don’t have access to eye care or glasses – the impairment would affect nearly every aspect of your life. This is the reality for 1.2 billion people worldwide. And yet, a simple eye exam and a pair of glasses can make all the difference in the world!
