An estimated 5 million people are blinded by cataract each year. Blindness affects more than 4% of the population in parts of sub-Saharan Africa.

With your support, we are declaring a fight against cataract in sub-Saharan Africa.

What is
Muntada Aid Doing?

Our missions are uncomplicated, but their impact on individuals, families and communities is life transforming.

Each successful cataract operation means independence, freedom of movement, working and seeing the faces of the family again.

In 2021-22, we are performing thousands of surgeries in Niger and Chad. We are organising these missions in partnership with IHH, Istanbul and Alliance of International Doctors, Istanbul. The camps will be held in towns like Niamey, Maradi, Tahoua and in Ndjamena. Apart from the cataract operation, we will be providing patients with eye drops, pain killers, anaesthesia for children and other medication that they may need to overcome this crippling condition.

An estimated 20 million people across Africa are blind or visually impaired, more than 75% of which is completely avoidable. This is an urgent problem that needs an immediate solution.

I consider myself blessed that I was able to witness the happiness on the faces of these elderly people as they could see the world and their beloved ones again for the first time in years.
