Every holiday season, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof presents a list of gifts that are more meaningful than a tie or sweater. This year, the Himalayan Cataract Project is honored to be named among a list of wonderful organizations working to create better lives for people around the globe.
Kristof's suggested gifts include helping a girl attend school, a refugee stay warm, a doctor save lives and the needlessly blind regain their sight.
Kristof has witnessed first hand the miracle of giving a person back their sight. He has experienced the incredibly moving outcome of the skilled hands of Drs. Sanduk Ruit and Geoff Tabin as they provide a simple surgery that changes a life forever.
Thank you for considering giving the gift of sight this holiday season.
