A Solution in Sight
90% of the 39 million people who are blind live in the developing world. The World Health Organization estimates that eight out of every ten cases of blindness can be prevented or cured.
With 35 years of experience, Seva is working to end preventable blindness. We build sustainable eye care programs in places where access to services is extremely limited - in places where people commonly lose their eyesight due to cataract, injuries, and other easily preventable causes.
Thanks to the generosity of our donor community, Seva has restored eyesight to 3 million people in places like Cambodia, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Nepal and Tibet. This past year Seva served over 1 million people worldwide with eye care, and an incredible 85,000 people received sight restoring cataract surgery.
