Since 1984, Seva has supported grassroots community development in rural Guatemala. These efforts now focus on quality eye health education and services, often through local community health promoters who are specially trained in how to detect early signs of blinding conditions and where to obtain treatment. These services are provided by our partner Visualiza.
“When I look into a child's eyes I see the future and I have nostalgia for that. Restoring sight to a child is one of the most important acts of kindness that there is. It warms the cockles of this old clown's heart.”
