Hi, my name is Asher Swan. I am a 13 year old boy living in Omaha, Nebraska. I have partnered up with the CEO of Give Sight Global on a project to help kids in India from babies to 16 year olds with cataracts and/or vision impairments. My goal is to get 25-30 kids from wherever they live in India to the hospital in West Bengal for eyecare and then back to their home. The cost of this will be $5,000.
The reason I am doing this is because being able to see is something we so easily take for granted. My Nana was losing her vision for the last couple of years of her life but would still come to my basketball games even though she couldn’t see me playing and couldn’t really see what was going on. I did not know this until a few weeks ago. At the time she was in her 80s. I’d like to help these kids be able to see since they have their entire lives ahead of them and have so much life to experience and can help others through being able to see better. I don’t want them to have to live their entire lives with cataracts and vision impairments. Please join me in helping these kids by donating however much you can. Thank you!
