"Himalayan Cataract Project performs miracles. This 2020 Holiday Impact Prize recipient goes to remote places to give people their sight back, at a cost that is sometimes just $20 in materials per cataract surgery. I've seen the surgeries in rural Nepal and rarely witnessed anything as uplifting as when the bandages come off and the blind can see again."
