Over 44,000 Miracles and still counting…

You did it! Over 44,000 Miracles and still counting… children and adults will be receiving a life-changing Miracle of their sight restored.

Reena nearly lost sight in her right eye. But wonderful support from people like you gave her the Miracle she needed. Reena’s cataract was successfully removed by paediatric ophthalmologist Dr Pawan and his team, and within 24 hours Reena no longer needed her eye patch. She could see clearly again!

Because of your support and generosity, we and reached over 44,000 Miracles gifts. We can now provide the Miracle of sight to even more children and adults with cataracts in some of the poorest places on earth, like Nepal, The Philippines and Indonesia.

Simple testing, surgery and inclusive health services can transform the lives of people with disability living in poverty. This support not only changes the life of the person, but also their families and the communities in which they live. This year on Miracles Day we’ve all witnessed what a difference this can makes to people’s lives.  And we couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you!

And a big thank you to all of our wonderful Christian radio station partners.

Our seven year partnership with Christian radio stations for Miracles Day has seen almost 200,000 Miracles give to provide sight-saving surgery to people in the world’s poorest places.

Thank you to every single one of our generous supporters and thank you for giving a Miracle gift of sight to someone like Reena.

On average, a cataract operation takes just 12 minutes but can change a life forever. There is still time to give someone a Miracle:  Click here
