About CBM Transforming the lives of people with disabilities, their families and communities in the world’s poorest places.
Why disability? People living with disabilities in poverty are the world’s poorest people Poverty leads to disability 80% disabled people live in developing countries Lack of healthcare, water, sanitation and poor nutrition Half of all blindness due to cataract – easily treated Disability leads to poverty 90% disabled children in developing countries not in school Lack of rehabilitation, education and employment opportunities We can’t end extreme poverty without tackling disability

How we can help • £ 20 would buy a special telescope to enable a child to see the blackboard at school. • £ 39 could pay for a pair of glasses to open up the world for someone with poor vision. • £ 100 can help train a teacher how to support children who struggle to see. • £ 190 can pay for surgery to remove cataracts from a child blind in both eyes and give them their sight back forever
