Thanks to you, we met our goal!
We are happy to announce that with the help of supporters like you we have met out $12,500 and will shortly be receiving matching funds from an anonymous foundation to help restore sight in Mexico.
By helping meet this challenge, thousands of families will receive the gift of sight and be able to begin lifting themselves out of poverty.
About Our Work in Mexico
SEE’s Sight-Restoring Program in Mexico provides free vision care and sight-restoring surgeries to blind, impoverished individuals. Our volunteer surgical teams, working with our local partners, will restore the sight of more than 1,500 men, women, and children in Mexico this year. This will take place over the course of more than 25 clinics, in at least a dozen different locations.
We have a long way to go before no one is unnecessarily blind – more than 2 million people in Mexico alone suffer from cataracts. But your support will directly benefit thousands of people in need. Adults will be able to return to work and provide for their families, while children will be able to attend school. Your gift gives them hope for a brighter future.
All donations made to this campaign (up to $12,500) will be matched dollar-for-dollar, and will be applied to SEE’s 2016 sight-restoring programs in Mexico. Additional donations made after the $12,500 matching goal is met will go toward SEE’s ongoing work in Mexico.
