There are many hundreds of humanitarian charities operating around the world today; each and every single one trying to make a crucial difference to the world.
Day by day, be it due to world conflict or natural disasters, many civilians are thrown into a world of famine. Their circumstances lead them to flee their homes, seek refuge in neighbouring countries and submit themselves to a life of poverty and hunger – through absolutely no fault of their own.
Many of these world disasters and conflicts are not constantly in the news, so what we often fail to see is the sheer amount of civilians who are struggling with health difficulties day by day; issues ranging from lack of water and education to isolated elderly citizens and those who need cataract surgery. Donations for health-related matters are just as important as clothing and blankets to those in less fortunate positions, especially when it comes to leading a comfortable life.
Which is why, here, at Al Mustafa Welfare Trust, there is more to us than meets the eye – so to speak...
Our eye restoration campaign aims to change lives and build safer and brighter futures for those who are socially isolated and have given up any hope of being able to see.
If you are reading this, you are most likely living in the sheltered half of the world; a world in which we take so much for granted - eyesight, speech, health, family and so on. However, some of those living in the other half would see things completely differently; if they could see, that is…
Today, over 250 million people are suffering from preventable blindness or poor vision, the majority of which reside in developing countries. In most of these cases, simple, straightforward cataract surgery is all they need to enable them to see again, but without any access to medical aid, they are left to suffer, with little hope for the future.
And to think that as little as £35 can help save someone’s vision; can you imagine giving someone the gift of sight for such a small amount? An amount that we would so often just overlook or waste on unnecessary things?
