Organization: Seva

Introduction: Seva is a global nonprofit eye care organization that transforms lives and strengthens communities by restoring sight and preventing blindness. An estimated 253 million people live with vision impairment: 36 million are blind and 217 million have moderate to severe vision impairment. Thankfully, 75% of all vision impairment can be prevented or cured. In fact, half of the world’s blindness is caused by cataracts, a condition that can be reversed with a 15-minute operation.

Year of Establishment: 1978

Service: 

Capacity Building: Partnering with local hospitals and institutions to improve infrastructure and increase the volume and quality of eye care services means that people will have access to care long after Seva’s involvement has ended.

Surgery: Low cost, high-quality surgeries cure blindness. Over 50% of blindness is caused by cataracts which can be cured by a 15-minute surgery costing as little as $50.

Glasses: Eye care can change lives immediately. A pair of glasses can bring the world into focus and open the door of opportunity: students can read and learn and adults can work and care for their families.

Medical Treatment: Access to the most basic eye care medicine can make a world of difference to people and families. Connecting people in remote communities with the medicine and treatment they need can prevent blindness before it happens

Region: Nepal, Cambodia, India, Pakistan, Peru, Paraguay, Bangladesh, Mexico, Tanzania, China, Egypt, Myanmar, Guatemala & USA etc
