According to the World Health Organization, at
least 2.2 billion people in the world have a vision
impairment or blindness. At least 1 billion have a
vision impairment that could have been prevented
or has yet to be addressed. Our mission at Seva, as a
global nonprofit, is to end avoidable blindness around
the world. Since 1978, we have delivered eye care
services to more than 46 million people worldwide

When you give sight back to
one person, you also change
the lives of those around them

People living with visual
impairment often rely on family
members and neighbors for
their daily needs

Vision = Freedom
About 90 percent of people affected with vision impairment
live in low- and middle-income countries, where not being
able to see often means a life of poverty — or worse. It’s nearly
impossible to work, to feed yourself, or to meet your basic
needs when you can’t see. Yet most vision impairment can
be prevented or cured. In fact, more than half of the world’s
blindness is caused by cataracts, a condition that can be
reversed with a 15-minute surgery

The Ripple Effect
When you give someone the gift of sight, you’re not just helping
one person to see again; you’re supporting an entire community

When one person regains sight, the rest of that person’s family
can concentrate on work, school, improving their home lives,
and helping others in need

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a gift and a present?

A “gift” and a “present” can mean that someone gives you something without expecting payment. However, a “gift” is usually more abstract in definition (i.e., “the gift of foresight”), while “present” is directly related to holidays and events (i.e., “birthday present”).

Is it correct to say she bought a gift for him?

Neither of these is a correct sentence, because neither is a sentence. A sentence is a complete thought. Either group of words is correct in the appropriate sentence, although, since most gifts are new, I would probably leave out “new. “ Each of the following sentences is correct: While she was in the department store, she bought a gift for him.

Ishe bought me a gift for my birthdaycorrect grammar?

With that out of the way, "He bought me a gift for my birthday" is perhaps more common, but that's not to say more correct. Using one tense over another is equally correct; they just express different shades of meaning. "He bought me a gift for my birthday" is clearly in the past tense.
