Double your impact for free eye surgeries

Sankara Eye Foundation (SEF) is very fortunate that one of our longtime donors in New York, who has been supporting recurring services at Sankara Eye Hospitals for a long time, is challenging us to raise up to $51,000 for free eye surgeries. We need to avail of this matching offer by May 31, 2017.

There are more than 55 million people who are visually handicapped in India but, on the positive side, more than 80% of the blindness is curable. SEF has been performing free eye surgeries for more than 30 years in India and has performed over 1.5 million free eye surgeries at the eight Sankara Eye Hospitals. Our goal is to play a significant role in eradicating curable blindness.

SEF is a top four star rated charity by Charity Navigator for commitment to accountability, transparency, governance and for keeping the overheads low.

You can close your eyes and donate and we will open more eyes.

Your donation for free eye surgeries at the Sankara Eye Hospitals will be matched fully by our anonymous donor until May 31, 2017 up to a maximum matching amount of $51,000. SEF sincerely appreciates your support and we are also very grateful to the anonymous donor for this grand initiative.
