Letters from Malawi

Film & Campaign Description

In September 2022, the World Health Organization announced that trachoma had been eliminated as a public health problem in Malawi. To celebrate this historic achievement Sightsavers worked with students of an after-school club to write letters to people in their community who had played a part in the elimination of trachoma. At the end of the letters, they asked their recipients to write letters or send messages to someone who had inspired them in the fight to combat the blinding eye disease.

We work in more than 30 countries to train health workers, provide eye operations, promote inclusive education, improve women's health and more. Our vision is of a world where no one is blind from avoidable causes, and where people with disabilities can participate equally in society.
