Give The Gift of Sight this Miracles Day
Written by Oliver on July 27, 2020
This August you have the opportunity to make a difference to children from across the globe. Join us on Thursday 6th August to make a miracle happen!
In partnership with CBM, 1079 Life wants to challenge you to give the gift of sight to those suffering from cataracts. All it takes is $33 to restore the sight and livelihood of someone with cataracts, that’s less than a takeaway meal!
It can be overwhelming to hear that more than 65 million people worldwide have cataracts and that the majority of these people live in the worlds poorest countries – where they cant afford surgery and live needlessly blind
For the uninitiated, Miracles Day is a charity even run by CBM. They are a Christian run development organisation devoted to improving the lives of people with disabilities in the poorest places all across the world.
Did you know cataracts are the leading cause of blindness? All it takes is a 12 minute operation to restore life-changing sight but this can’t be achieved without your help!!
“My comand is this: Love each other as I have loved you” – John 15:12
In 2019, 33 Christian radio stations participated in Miracles Day and their listeners donated a total of 47,000 Miracle gifts of sight saving surgery.
Tune in on Thursday August 6th to hear testimonies of how your generosity will restore the sight and livelihoods of those who have lost one of the most fundamental senses.
