In developing countries around the world, thousands of people suffer from blindness due to cataracts. A relatively simple procedure to correct the problem is common in the United States but not in these countries where poverty abounds and there this is a shortage of surgical specialists. Through International Relief Teams' surgical programs, many are given the gift of sight along with the hope of a brighter future.
International Relief Teams will send a team of physicians and nurses to provide surgery for people in remote areas who have no other way of obtaining this assistance. The team takes all of the medical equipment, instruments, medicines and supplies needed to perform surgery. Your donation of $60 will restore the eyesight of a person previously blinded by cataracts.
