For thousands of years, an ancient, painful, eye infection that leads to blindness has been leaving communities devastated… and nowhere is this devastation more evident than in rural Ethiopia.

But hope can change everything. And Canadian donors like you are being led by the hope that this ancient disease can be eradicated… that the plan to dramatically reduce this infection’s impact in Ethiopia is now available.

Operation: safe and sound

Donors like you provided antibiotics to treat 302,415 people’s infection and funded 1,884 surgeries to cure the pain… the first steps in treating trachoma’s effects.

Yet the critical steps to completely eradicate trachoma are found in Operation: Safe and Sound… and already Canadians like you are joining in by building 42 wells and 12 safe latrines so children and families will no longer live in fear of this devastating disease!
