World Sight Day: Oct 12

Submitted By: – Click to email about this post
With World Sight Day approaching (Oct. 12) I would like to bring to your attention an organization I support called HCP Cureblindness. It’s a charitable organization that is working to cure avoidable blindness by providing free sight-restoring surgeries in some of the most remote and under-served regions, and training in-country doctors to do the same.

In their almost 30 years of operations, HCP and their partners have provided an amazing 1.4 million sight-restoring surgeries to people in need, trained almost 20,000 eye care professionals in low- and middle-income countries, and have established 5 eye hospitals–and they are poised to do so much more in the years ahead.

I can’t think of a more magical gift to give someone than to restore their sight.

Please visit HCP’s website ( to see for yourself the difference they’re making in the world. And think about how exciting it would be to be part of the solution by getting involved yourself.
