You can help Donate Leave a Legacy How to leave a legacy Leave a gift in your Will to Vision Aid Overseas and help the world to see. Supporters just like you can help the world to see for generations to come. A gift of just a small amount of your estate can provide life changing eye care and glasses, to those who need it most. A Will can help those closest to you, and it can enable us to help the 1.2 billion people worldwide who struggle to see because they don't have access to the eye care they need. Your Will can provide glasses and eye care to help parents earn enough to provide for their families, and help children in school to see their textbooks and blackboards clearly. I thought I would have to give up being a tailor, as it had become impossible to thread a needle and to retain the accuracy in my work. I cannot believe the difference a pair of glasses make. I can see everything as though I had young eyes again! – Patrick, from Sierra Leone. Make a Will Online To make the process convenient and secure we work with Make a Will Online.
