According to various studies, a significant number of people suffer from eyesight related problems leading to blindness if not tackled on time. A bigger percentage of people affected come from developing countries where eyesight health doesn’t seem to go as a priority. In May 2018, Sightsavers spearheaded a campaign to show the world the successful runs and aspirations achieved in India while serving the blind and visually impaired. The campaign was mainly made aware through social media platform such as #UnfoldTheirDreams on Twitter.
Among these heartfelt stories included screening people for eye infections for early detection before permanent damage sets in. Sightsavers is well known for providing free antibiotics to thousands who would have been skeptical of the medical costs. Their staff take charge of teaching patients and other vulnerable people on how to avoid eye diseases and consequently performing eye operations to restore eyesight. The alliance also counsels those already severely affected by eye infection causing blindness for them to overcome social stigma. While some families may find it hard purchasing tools that help the blind to live a productive life, Sightsavers intervene by providing the tools for free and teaching them how to make maximum use.
Despite most people gaining knowledge about this commendable job by Sightsavers mostly through social media, the alliance has been in India since 1966. Many are a living testimony to the alliance’s work quoting how they got encouraged to continue living and working productively despite facing eyesight disabilities. With the education, many Indians are now knowledgeable on how to prevent blindness and eye infections. Mostly unsanitary washing conditions have often been the leading cause of blindness, but with the power of knowledge, they can now take the precaution to prevent themselves from contracting infections.
Sightsavers have been successful over their years of operation while partnering with government entities to practice social responsibility across the universe. Apart from aiding outpatients with visual disabilities, the non-profit making organization also helps out people with other disabilities. They concentrate their efforts on providing necessities such as antibiotics, education, and surgeries mostly in poverty-stricken areas.
The alliance’s efforts have been recognized and become successful owing to a hardworking and passionate staff and volunteers who work towards changing the world. They have also partnered with corporations out to exercise corporate social responsibility. This makes it easier for Sightsavers to achieve their objectives through donations and extra labor. Truly, a hand that gives receives.
