ACM Lifting Lives® MY CAUSE: Corey Smith
The name Seva (say-va) is a Sanskrit word meaning "selfless service."
Seva was founded in 1978 by a group of medical professionals, counterculture activists, musicians, and compassionate individuals, all dedicated to the prevention of blindness around the globe. Most notably among them are public health expert Dr. Larry Brilliant, spiritual leader Ram Dass, and humanitarian activist Wavy Gravy.
A Solution in Sight There are an astonishing 39 million people who live in darkness around the globe. The extreme majority of people who are blind live in the developing world, 90% to be exact. Perhaps the most incredible statistic is that eight out of ten people who are blind could see again if they simply had access to an eye doctor(source: World Health Organization). Since 1978, Seva's Sight Program has helped nearly 3.5 million people to see again!
Seva's work is made possible by the generosity of donors, foundations, volunteers and friends — all joined together in the spirit of service.
