Cloud Nine Media | Sightsavers: The Billionth Treatment for River Blindness
Sightsavers delivers the one billionth treatment for River Blindness, a parasite-borne condition that leads to severe disability and the destruction of entire communities. Because of mass treatment programmes like those run by Sightsavers, young children like Dorcas can live a very different life to her grandfather, who was made blind by river blindness. Cloud Nine Media was there to witness this incredible moment – reminding us how incredibly important this work is.
