Lucy Holmes, Light FM breakfast show host, has helped inspire Australians to give almost 200,000 Miracles of sight saving surgery in the past seven years.
“I’m so passionate about CBM because they change people’s lives… they do it quietly and unassumingly and they just do this miraculous work every single day, day in day out. No bells and whistles… no “look at us!” They just go “If you can spare $33, you can help change a life.”
You can join Lucy and give the Miracle of sight-saving surgery to someone living in poverty with cataracts.
Someone like 11-year-old Reena from rural Nepal, who was unable to see the blackboard at school and struggled to participate at school.
Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness throughout the world. Although relatively simple to treat, cataracts often lead to permanent vision loss for people living in poverty who can’t afford surgery to remove the cataract.
$33 is all it takes to give someone with cataracts the 12-minute sight-saving surgery needed to restore their sight. Sight restored in 12-minutes… a Miracle.
Your $33 and a 12-minute operation can change a life forever.
