September is Save Your Sight month, dedicated to eradicating preventable blindness around the globe.
39 million people are blind worldwide. Eighty percent of visual impairments can be avoided or cured; yet huge numbers of people continue to struggle with serious vision problems. Why? Ninety percent of the visually impaired live in developing countries, where they often cannot access or afford the treatment they need. (WHO 2012)
As a small example of what your generosity meant in 2012, we want to share with you the story of the cataract surgeries we did in December: the gift of sight. As for 2013, stay tuned – so far, Health In Harmony has already launched a new look to our website including a new blog to keep you – our community – more involved and connected.
