Retinal injections to save Palestinians’ eyesight
The Messenger (PBUH) said: Whoever brings ease to one in difficulty, Allah will make it easy for him in this life and the Hereafter.” (Sahih Muslim)
Besieged and abandoned. Diabetic Palestinians in Gaza not only have to endure cyclical violence, livelihood restrictions, and disrupted electricity, but they also face losing their vision, knowing that it is preventable.
£1,000 - Provide a diabetic Palestinian in Gaza with retina injections to prevent blindness.
Forgotten and neglected
Palestinians are disproportionately affected by diabetes, with cases up to 16% higher than the global average. Diabetic retinopathy is a complication from diabetes that causes people to lose their eyesight. It can be prevented by medicinal injections to the retina, but the treatment is too costly for most Gazans.
Let’s be the change that these vulnerable people need.
When you donate £1,000, you’ll help a vulnerable person in Gaza to save their eyesight. It’s a priceless gift, which will benefit the person for the rest of their lives.
A future of change
With your help, we want to provide retina treatment to 200 Palestinians.
By saving a person’s eyesight, you’ll help them navigate their environment, earn a living, and care for their families. It provides ongoing benefits for the whole family for years to come.
