Donate to NGO for the Blind

Did you know that 75% of blindness can be prevented? There are more than 8 million* blind people in India. That’s about 30% of the world’s total blind population – most of whom went blind unnecessarily. You can make a difference by helping us combat the problem.

Since 1966, we have been working with local partners to eliminate avoidable blindness and support people who are irreversibly blind or disabled.
