Hot weather, malnutrition and climate conditions in Africa cause many people to lose their sight to cataracts at a young age.
It is estimated that two million Africans experience vision problems stemming from cataracts. An insufficient number of doctors as well as a lack of financial resources translate to thousands with cataracts living in darkness despite the availability of a cure.
Embrace Relief’s cataract surgery project is aiming to provide relief to thousands of cataract sufferers in Africa, who have lived in darkness for years due to poverty and a shortage of doctors.
