Cataract is responsible for 51% of world blindness, which represents about 20 million people (2010)*. Even though cataracts can be removed, in many countries such as Bangladesh and Jordan there are many obstacles that prevent patients to receive surgery. Well over half a million people in Bangladesh are blind due to cataract. Cataract accounts for up to 73.39% of blindness in Bangladesh. With one simple procedure, their eyesight can be restored. Working with partners on the ground we are providing free cataract surgeries in rural Bangladesh and multiple regions in Jordan.
