Making Miracles happen

Stories | August 1, 2019

This month is all about Miracles! Of giving a precious Miracle gift to restore sight for children and adults.

Beautiful Nhung from Vietnam received that precious Miracle last year. Her cataract was removed, and Nhung was fitted with the correct prescription glasses so she could see. Today, Nhung has an even more excellent gift – to dream of a bright future for herself, her family and her community.

This wonderful Miracle was made possible because of caring people like YOU. This month we’ll be sharing with you heart-warming and joyous stories of people receiving the Miracle gift of their sight restored.

Stories like Reena, an 11-year-old girl living in Nepal who lost sight in her right eye because of a cataract. Stories like Aunt Meena’s love for Reena helped her get the medical care she needed. And stories like paediatric ophthalmologist Dr Pawan who examines over 150 children with all types of eye conditions and cataracts EVERY DAY!

Last year thousands of generous Aussies came together to give Miracles to children and adults in need. That support resulted in a record-breaking 38,948 Miracles from warm and wonderful supporters across Australia.

It’s going to be a fantastic month. We’re super excited to share stories of Miracles with you. Follow CBM and Miracles Month and see the difference your Miracle can make.

This year, with your help, we hope to raise enough for 40,000 Miracles.
