Poverty and disability go hand in hand creating a cycle of inequality, isolation, and exclusion that leads to the most extreme forms of poverty.

Your gift of sight
We share a vision with our supporters to create a world free from avoidable blindness. We want to eradicate blindness-causing diseases like trachoma and river blindness, and provide surgery and rehabilitation for blinding eye conditions like cataracts. Your gift of sight will prevent someone from needlessly going blind forever.
Your gift of mobility
Do you believe that every child deserves every chance to stand on their own two feet? To go to school, play, and grow up to create a life free from poverty? We do too. But people with disabilities are too often left behind. Your gift of mobility helps children with physical disabilities like club foot, bow legs and knock knees. It helps with surgery, rehabilitation, and the chance to create a brighter future.
Your help during emergencies
The impact of a disaster or conflict is far greater for people living with a disability. They may be unable to escape the situation, because they are blind or are dependent on a wheelchair. They may not be able to access basic emergency and health services, like finding food and water distribution sites in a refugee camp. Sadly, they are often put to the back of the queue in dire situations of survival. But you can change that. You can ensure that no one gets left behind. Your support will ensure that the most vulnerable are not forgotten during emergencies.
A gift in your Will
Including CBM in your Will is a powerful legacy with life-changing and eternal impact. This wonderful way of giving and ensuring your values live on, will help end poverty for the world’s hardest to reach, invisible and often forgotten people. No matter how big or small, a gift in your Will can change a life forever.
Your trust in us
Central to everything we do is our
commitment to being clear, honest and transparent. We are accountable to our supporters, and to our beneficiaries – people who live with a disability in the poorest parts of the world.
