Efforts to eradicate blindness in impoverished regions by Sightsavers.

Sightsavers is a non-profit organization founded on 5th January 1950 by Sir John Wilson. Its headquarter regions are in the European Unions.

Sightsavers is a charity organization that aims at preventing avoidable blindness, treating it as well as empowering individuals with visual impairment and other disabilities in poorest regions of the world. This organization is under the leadership of Caroline Harper the chief executive officer.

Blindness is majorly caused by bacterial infection leading to trachoma. In reality, fighting trachoma cannot be done by one entity only; that is why all the entities- governments, UN, NGO- are supposed to work together.

The government of United Kingdom announced it will give a donation of 20 million euros; this funding was intended to aid in the fight against blindness through providing sight-saving drugs (such as antibiotics to eradicate blinding infection) as well as surgical interventions in 10 poor developing countries found in the commonwealth.

It is worth noting that trachoma is among the prevalent diseases in these regions majorly caused by inadequate sanitation, lack of clean water, an infestation of flies and other insects. The disease is transferred through human contact and flying insects.

As a result of close proximity among these impoverished individuals, trachoma which begins as a bacterial infection (that is easy to treat in early stage)spreads quickly. Consequently, lack of treatment for this infection results in scarring of eyelids -which is very painful- as well as inward turning of an eye when the infected person blinks.

“What is river blindness?” River blindness is a parasitic infection that can, over time, cause irreversible blindness. The disease is spread by the bite of infected black flies that breed near fast-flowing rivers. 120 million people are at risk worldwide. River blindness can lead to severe skin irritation, pain and sight loss. 500,000 people are blind because of it. 37 million are infected by the disease. Medication can stop it spreading. Fly catchers work to eradicate the flies that carry river blindness. Together, we can eliminate the disease.

However, when detected in its early stages trachoma could be treated using antibiotics. In severe cases, surgical procedure could prevent blindness caused by trachoma.

Trachoma is part of the Neglected Tropical Diseases alongside leprosy and sleeping sickness.

The British Government which had earlier on infused 20 million euros donated another 360 million euros. It understood the need to suppress these diseases before they become hard to confront in the near future. Their effects range from death, physical impairment and life-long disabilities.

Although everyone is at the risk of getting trachoma, women and the children are the most affected. The benefits of pooling resources and working together to eradicate Trachoma is best illustrated by Malawai. 4 years ago almost 8 million individuals were at the risk of losing sight according to researchers. Hopefully, their collaborated efforts have seen this figure reduce significantly.

Sightsavers has helped change the lives of many individuals significantly using their team of volunteers and professionals even in civil war countries. Therefore they facilitate the attainment of sustainable development goals set aside by the United Nation because of their belief 75 % of sight loss can be prevented and treated.
