Every minute somewhere in the world, a child loses their sight – for ever. For most children in the developing world, this catastrophe will ruin their lives. And shockingly, for most it is completely preventable. vision4children exists to tackle this terrible tragedy – with research, training and family support. Time is of the essence. You can see, we need your support…
