I was recently in the Philippines at went to CharityVision's Mabuhay House and was blown away at the work they're doing there. Not only did they care for many patients needing cataract surgery and glasses, but their added work of helping children with club feet to walk again, and children with cleft faces and palates to have the surgery needed to heal the cleft. AMAZINGLY dedicated and loving staff. To think they've been helping people for more than 32 years. AND...I learned something great, 100% of donations go directly to helping these patients. None of any donation goes to fundraising or overhead.

Well organized, well run, and kind people. They have done so much good throughout the world and with the recent campaigns are dreaming bigger. It's been an incredible experience to be a small part of something that will be so big.

CharityVision is one of the most efficient charities in the world. CharityVision's philosophy of empowering local doctors to help their own poor creates sustainability and ownership in international eye care that is exceptional and unique.

Having been committed to humanitarian work and causes for more than 4 decades, I am very much aware of the many organizations working to help those in need of an helping hand throughout the world. I have reviewed more than 145 different humanitarian organizations to see which provide the biggest bang for the donor's buck.

I have found Desert International Foundation to be 100% on the up and up, delivering the promises they make and giving the donor a sense that their money is being used wisely and effectively. Their working model is one of the best I've seen. I only wish that more humanitarian groups could/would adapt this kind of a working model.

I have lived in some of the countries that Deseret International works in and have seen first hand the enormous need there is in these countries. What they are doing to address these needs is nothing short of remarkable. I give my 110% endorsement to this organization. My family has a number or humanitarian organizations we give to and Deseret Foundation is #1 on our list of organizations. If you want to donate and know your money is being used wisely, safely, and effectively, than this is the place to put it.

I love the fact that 100% of my donation goes directly to help disadvantaged people with medical problems around the world. I really like Deseret's philosophy that they get local doctors who know how to deal with problems the US doctors rarely see, and give them the supplies and facilities to be able to help their own people. This essentially leverages my donation 100 times what other charities can provide.

I've been fortunate enough to see the inner workings of CharityVision. The organization is based on the idea that people given the ability will help those in their own communities. CharityVision is efficient, well motivated and directed by caring and concerned people who know how to create sustainable solutions to the blindness epidemic. I'm amazed at how many lives they impact through their charitable work and the network of people all over the world who are dedicated to restoring vision for people in need.

What a fantastic organization! I highly recommend them as a trustworthy and viable service. Please support them both financially and by spreading the word about their noble cause.
