Our charity of the day for today’s #EyecareFAQCharity
Advent is Sightsavers.
Help them make some noise for International Day of Persons with Disabilities.
‘People with disabilities in developing countries deserve to have the same access to healthcare, education and employment as everyone else. They’re being left out of the picture, and this has to change.’
For the past year, they've been calling for politicians to recognise the problem – that the world’s most vulnerable people don’t get to benefit from global aid – and asking them to commit to a solution by prioritising disability in worldwide plans to fight poverty.
With your help they want to mark the day by creating as much noise as possible. Here’s how you can help – it won’t take long, and it won’t cost a penny:
