This #GivingTuesday, December 1, 2020, give the gift of sight to children and adults living in low-income communities in Latin America through VER International.

More than a billion people worldwide need glasses and eye surgery, and their inability to see further perpetuates the cycle of poverty as children are labeled “poor learners” and adults are unable to excel at their jobs.

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit our communities especially hard. Many individuals will go without proper eyesight for at least another year as clinics are overburdened and organizations such as ours are unable to travel and help stop the gap.

This Giving Tuesday our fundraising goal of $25,000 - enough to cover the medical supplies and surgical equipment, such as an autorefractor, needed for the next surgical project scheduled as soon as travel is allowed.. Please consider making a donation and join us in bringing the gift of sight to so many who have waited too long.
