About Misión Claridad

Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in the world. Medical experts estimate that 50% of the world’s population develop cataracts by the age of 65. But there is a cure: surgery. In Canada, that surgery is free. In Ecuador, it’s not, putting it out of the reach of far too many.
 
Misión Claridad (Mission Clarity) will provide free cataract surgery to Ecuadoreans who can’t afford it and whose lives and livelihoods are profoundly impacted by their blindness or vision impairment due to cataracts. The mission will also raise awareness of what cataracts are, the risk factors that predispose individuals to cataracts, and how several of those risk factors can be minimized.
 
Vision loss affects one’s quality of life and puts a social, emotional, and economic burden on the individual and those who provide support to that individual. Sight matters! Funds raised through this raffle will help purchase the supplies, equipment, and medications needed to give the gift of sight.
