Sightsavers YouTube Channel
A touching YouTube video entitled “Blink – Sightsavers” shares the impact of diseases in other countries that cause sight loss in children. This video also informs viewers how they can help by donating towards this cause. It also points out how little the treatment can cost, emphasizing how much a small donation can tremendously impact the life of a child.
Not only is this video informational on the difficulties children face due to the diseases in other countries, but the need for access to treatment. Without this treatment, it can cause children to lose their sight. As treatment to reverse some of these contributors towards blindness is not expensive for many in other countries such as the United States and United Kingdom, it is unfortunately expensive to those suffering from these diseases. As such, a donation that might seem small to some living in more developed countries can truly make a difference and save a child or a few children from losing their sight.
This video illustrates how important the work that Sightsavers does is and the impact it can have on people’s lives across the world that so badly need this help. Through its philanthropic work, Sightsavers is working to help with treatment, raising funds, and promoting awareness of those that suffer from the loss of sight and other disabilities.
