About CBM Ireland
- © CBM / argum / Einberger
CBM Ireland is an international Christian development organisation, committed to improving the quality of life of persons with disabilities in the poorest countries of the world.
Christian Blind Mission was founded by Ernst Christoffel in 1908 to help blind children in Turkey and Iran. Over the last 106 years this has blossomed into CBM International, a worldwide network of eleven organisations working in 73 countries.
CBM Ireland is a fully registered Irish charity with the Charity Registration Number: 14987.
CBM Ireland was set up in 2002 and is based in Co. Dublin.
We do this work because in situations of extreme hardship, during wars, famines, droughts and natural disasters, people with disabilities are always at the back of the queue. They are the world’s most vulnerable people.
Today, CBM is the only international organisation in the world dedicated solely to helping people affected by poverty and disability. Especially people affected by:
·Blindness and vision impairment
·Physical mobility disability
·Maternal safety and birth related disability
·Restricted access to education to disability
·Disabilities caused by war or natural disasters
We also work in partnership with leading organisations and hospitals on the ground in the locations where we work. Organisations that share our passion for helping people with disabilities, irrespective of race, gender or religion.
Last year, CBM supporters - people just like you – helped more than 30 million people around the world through life-changing donations.
