The loss of one's sight is the one faculty that none of us can do without as we then become totally dependent on others to look after us from feeding to going shopping or crossing the road.
I chose Sightsavers International and Orbis, as although they do the same work, they operate in different countries.
These charities work with NGOs in the Third World countries building clinics, providing the sophisticated equipment, training the Surgeons to perform operations such as Cataract operations and training Nurses in preventative eye care as well as after operation care. For more detail please look at their websites.
Would you be prepared to support The Nicholas White objective of '18,000 km to Save Sight' by donating to the Charities direct and referring to '18,000km to Save Sight'.
Donations can be made online and, if you are a UK Tax Payer, the charity can claim the tax back on your gift if you complete a Gift Aid Declaration, this will give the Charity an extra 25% on your gift.
