STORY:

.Imagine not being able to see your family. Imagine not being able to see the beauty around you, not being able to find your way around, not being able to do your daily activities with the breeze of ease you are used to. Imagine not being able to see. Who would take care of you, guide you? Life as you know it would falter into darkness… literally.

.

.

This is the reality for the 40 million blind people of the 300 million visually impaired population. 80% of these visual impairments though are actually treatable. Many of these are due to cataract – a watery clouding of the lenses – which only requires a 15 minutes surgery which costs $15 per eye to return to these people the gift of sight. But in Africa, due to the cost, distance from their homes and a shortage of ophthalmologists, only the few who can afford it have been cured. This is where you can come in.

.

.

The IDB in collaboration with over 30 NGOs and charities have come together to save more people from going blind. In the second phase of the Alliance to Fight Avoidable Blindness (AFAB), we will be focusing on 12 countries across Africa from Burkina Faso to Djibouti with most having a Muslim population above 50%. The idea is simple – to prevent blindness where possible, to treat what is curable and in the long run, to have these countries take control of the program.

.

.

SOLUTION:

.

To meet these targets, we hope to reach the following goals:

  • – Screen 10 million children and provide eyeglasses if required
  • – Perform 1.5 million cataract surgeries (with an 80% success rate)
  • – Build 6 glaucoma treatment centers in 6 countries
  • – Train 90 eye care specialists
  • – Provide 70 scholarships to doctors and 70 to nurses specialising in eye care
  • – Establish intervention programs in 4 countries and more

We aim to empower muslims to help fellow muslims, through muslims.

 

WHY FIGHT BLINDNESS?

.

In many of the countries we aim to help, to live without vision is to live without education, employment and independence. As a result, millions remain trapped in a cycle of poverty. On a national scale, this puts a huge strain on a country’s economy, and is a major obstacle to its development. In most of these countries, most of these people would have to rely on their family members to help in their everyday struggle. Extra costs are incurred, children are kept out of schools to guide their parents or grandparents – one blindness affecting multiple lives.

Through Global Sadaqah, you can now contribute to this much needed and noble program, and directly give the gift of sight to 2,000 children and adults.

We may not be able to change the world, but we can help change a future. Help us give the gift of sight and fight avoidable blindness together.
