In developing countries around the world, the cycle of poverty often prevents people from accessing the eye care they need.

These operations can restore someone's ability to attend school, take care of their health, and contribute to their community.

Young girl in eye exam Class of young kids with glasses

Faced with a parents nightmare, Stephanie was left at the mercy of doctors and specialists — forced to make immediate decisions that would ultimately affect the future of her daughter’s health.

During this emergency, Stephanie was so thankful to live in a country where eye care was readily accessible for her family. Now, she wants to pay it forward and help provide eye care for children around the world who aren’t as fortunate as Emerie — and you can help her.

Stephanie invites you to join her in the campaign. There is no better time to do it! A second and anonymous donor will match your gift! Just think about how many people you can support. By donating today, you can help children around the world access the eye care they desperately require.
