Thank you! We're thrilled with the success of Seva's inaugural #SevaSocialGiving crowdfunding campaign



Your support of this innovative campaign made it possible for Seva to train 40 teachers in Cambodia who are screening the eyes of 29,000 students for visual impairment. These efforts are identifying children who need of glasses and sight-saving medical care, like sweet 7-year-old Bopha who is featured in this video.

Following the success of our first #SevaSocialGiving crowdfunding campaign, we are looking forward to the launch of our next one! This time, we are taking our crowdfunding efforts to Guatemala, raising money for a critical addition to the eye care services provided by our partner hospital Visualiza.

Stay tuned for the next #SevaSocialGiving launch on March 1st!
