A letter from Leadership

Dear Friends of the World Cataract Foundation,

Thank you for your faithful support through the years. The past eighteen months have been challenging for all. COVID-19 has changed many things. As we navigate these extraordinary times, we need your help more than ever. Doctors, nurses and support staff are ready to resume our mission trips, medical equipment had been collected and is read to ship…the green light to go is expected soon. Our website will give you a glimpse of our trips and the work done by our dedicated group of doctors, nurses and support staff when they travel.

In 2020, the World Cataract Foundation help a “Stay at Home Sight Night” which was our fundraising touch stone with you. You were very generous with your support. Our hope was that in 2021 we could do a live Sight Night. After much discussion and soul searching, the decision was made on the side of caution to do our next live Sight Night in 2022. We sincerely hope you will join us then.

We are blessed with skilled surgeons and nurses ready to travel as soon as  our recipient countries will allow and team members feel safe going. The need in these countries is great. Even though we are still waiting to travel, we have been collecting and sending important equipment and other support items to hospitals and doctors in need so our expenses have not stopped. When. Travel opens and with your help and financial support, we will resume our missions to restore sight to people in need.

We thank you for continued support for the World Cataract Foundation’s efforts to “Help the World to See.”

Respectfully,

Jerre Minor Freeman, MD, Founder

Gib Wilson, President

Lori Hudson, Executive Director
