Donate just £20 and bring a helpless person out from the darkness


Vision Bangladesh


Thousands of poor people - including children - are blinded by cataracts across Sylhet, Bangladesh. Half the children will die in two years. The adults can’t work and fall deep into poverty. And yet, the operation only costs £20 per person. The simple surgery only takes 20 minutes and will change someone’s life forever.


What is Vision Bangladesh?


Vision Bangladesh is a ground breaking partnership between BRAC and Sightsavers.


Our aim is to eradicate 80% of blindness in Sylhet by 2014 and across the whole of Bangladesh by 2020.


For over 600,000 adults and 40,000 children, it is still not too late to have their sight restored and be given the opportunity to lead independent lives.


To realise this ambitious, but achievable task, we need to raise £3 million to perform 100,000 sight restoring operations in the division of Sylhet by 2014. We can only achieve this with generous public donations.
