For many of us, Easter marks the much-anticipated turn of the season from winter to spring. Cold and dreary winterscapes are fading away to reveal the bright and welcoming colours of spring.

Flowers begin to bloom, trees grow back their lush leaves and the days become warmer, inviting us all to step outside to smell the scent of new growth.

Now, imagine if you could give the gift of seeing this seasonal transformation to someone living with blindness. Well, by making a donation through Operation Eyesight’s Gift Guide, you can help more people like Kwame to do just that.

This Easter, you can transform lives in so many ways:

  • Being able to see the world in all its beauty is a gift you can share. Help others focus on the joys of every season with a $20 donation. Your gift will provide up to three people with brand-new, custom-fitted prescription eyeglasses.
  • Imagine what it would be like to be able to see the world around you for the first time after years of living with blindness! For just $50, you could provide sight-restoring cataract surgery for someone in Africa or South Asia.
  • Providing continuous care for people living with visual impairment doesn’t have to be overly-expensive – a little bit really does go a long way! Your donation of $100 will help train eye doctors, nurses and eye care technicians, so they can provide communities with quality eye care.

With any of the above gifts, you can also choose to make your donation in the name of a loved one, colleague, family member or friend. You can even send them a personalized Easter eCard to celebrate.

There are so many incredible sights to be seen as the seasons change. Give the gift of sight today so people in developing countries can not only smell the flowers, but see them bloom, too.

This Easter we’d like to thank you for your continued support and for helping us share the beauty of the world through your donations. We wish you and your family all the best during this turn of the season!
