It's Miracles Day on 18 August 2022
Every year, thousands of Australians come together on CBM’s Miracles Day. On Thursday 18 August 2022, you can join CBM Australia, Christian radio stations, CBM field partners, corporate sponsors, churches, groups and schools to give people the Miracle of sight.
It only costs $33 – less than the cost of two movie tickets or a take-away dinner – to provide sight-saving surgery to someone living in the world’s poorest places. This has a life-changing impact on their education or employment prospects and their ability to care for and support their loved ones.
In 2022, we’re celebrating 10 years of Miracles Days. Over the past decade, more than 300,000 people have received the Miracle gift of sight. Will you donate the Miracle of sight-saving surgery?
What's a Miracle?
A Miracle is a $33 gift that gives someone blind from cataracts the 12-minute sight-saving surgery needed to restore their sight.
All it takes is $33, a 12-minute operation and YOU to restore sight for someone with cataracts… a Miracle.
Help fight preventable blindness with us this Miracles Day.
Give a Miracle

Someone like 9-year-old Sabina who had cataracts, leaving her unable to attend school or keep up with friends. Your contribution towards giving the gift of sight helps those most in need to gain access to education, jobs and the ability to live a more fulfilling life.
This year you can give even more people - like Sabina - the Miracle gift of sight.
