Transforming lives by restoring sight.

100% Secure

International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples

Statistically speaking, Native communities face significantly more health inequities and disparities than other populations in the U.S. The cause of this is a combination of barriers, including poverty, geographic isolation, the lack of linguistically and culturally appropriate providers and complicated health system requirements.

Through Seva's American Indian Sight Initiative, quality eye care services for numerous Native communities throughout the United States are provided. Seva collaborates and creates local partnerships with hospitals and clinics in and near Native land to help communities access care and wellness services year-round.

For 30+ years, Seva’s Native American program has addressed a broad range of community issues from cultural preservation to educational & economic development, conservation, and health & wellness. And your gift today, in honor of the upcoming World Indigenous Peoples Day on August 9th, will go miles in continuing to transform the lives of indigenous peoples through vital eye care.

Your Compassion In Action

90% of vision impairment can be prevented or cured. In fact, more than half of the world's blindness is caused by cataracts, a condition that can be reversed with a 15-minute surgery costing only $50.

Restoring sight is one of the most cost-effective health interventions to reduce poverty and relieve suffering. With clear vision, those you have helped will now be able to return to work and school and live more fulfilled lives that are free from blindness.

Since 1978, Seva has provided sight-saving surgeries, eyeglasses, medicine, and other eye care services to more than 46 million people in under-served communities. Together, we can prevent blindness, restore sight and transform lives.
