Your support during Ramadan is a vital opportunity to help those who are in need or less fortunate.

Your support during Ramadan is a crucial opportunity to extend a helping hand to those in need. As we engage in fasting and self-reflection during this holy month, we are reminded of the blessings bestowed upon us – the love of our families, the companionship of friends, and the gift of good health.

Why Give Charity in Ramadan?

Ramadan is not only a time for personal reflection and spiritual growth but also a time to extend compassion and generosity to those less fortunate. Giving charity during Ramadan holds special significance as any good deed performed during this month is multiplied many times over.

Supporting initiatives like Albasar’s sight-saving efforts not only helps fulfil our religious duties but also ensures ongoing rewards as the impact of restored sight continues to benefit individuals and communities for years to come.

With operations spanning over 48 countries, including many with substantial Muslim populations, Albasar is dedicated to preventing avoidable blindness and providing essential eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight. Thanks to the unwavering support of compassionate individuals like you, we’ve been able to facilitate vital medical treatments and sight-saving surgeries for countless children and families.

Our efforts extend beyond eye care to promote inclusive, quality education, ensuring every child has the opportunity to pursue their dreams. Read the stories below to see how restoring sight has impacted some of our beneficiaries firsthand.

Your generosity during Ramadan 2024 will have a profound impact on entire communities. Thank you for your kindness and support.

The Challenge: A Global Health Crisis

Over 2.2 billion people worldwide suffer from vision impairment or blindness, with a staggering number of these cases being preventable or treatable.

The lack of access to basic eye care services in many parts of Africa and Asia exacerbates this crisis, leaving millions in darkness and affecting their education, livelihood, and quality of life.

Al Basar International Foundation is committed to changing this reality, one life at a time.
