Restoring Sight to Haitian Children

This project seeks to raise $33,000 to help restore eyesight to thousands of children and youth in Haiti.

Goal: $33,000

About this Mission Project

The Cap Haitien Eye Clinic offers the best quality care to the more than one million people living in poverty in northern Haiti. Many in the region are jobless, but they know if they need eye care they will not be turned away at this clinic, which is part of the Haitian Baptist Convention.

Marie, age 24 (pictured at the right), is the mother of two children she had never seen. Marie’s blindness was caused by cataracts, which can develop at a young age in this tropical climate. After surgery, Marie got to see her children and husband for the first time.

The eye clinic shares the gospel and brings hope to thousands of people each year through surgery, medications and glasses.

Your gift of $50 will provide two plastic bags of serum used in the operating room. $100 will pay for cataract surgery for one child. $250 will pay for two surgeries and provide glasses.

Marie once relied on her sense of touch to earn a living. She is relearning how to work using her newly recovered eyesight. Marie is thankful for this restorative surgery, which has expanded her ability to work and care for her growing family.
