Brighter futures through charitable donations

commission4mission recently made its annual charitable donation from the charitable element in its commissions and sales. £784.00 was given to both Sightsavers and SmileTrain.

Sightsavers write: "Thank you very much for the generous donation of £784.00 from commission4mission and for choosing to support Sightsavers ... Seven-year-old Murtaza Mir, from Pakistan, was born with cataracts in both eyes. He had never seen his village or his family clearly. It was a 645km bus trip for Murtaza and his mother to reach the Sightsavers-supported Korangi Hospital for cataract surgery. The day after surgery some of his sight had started to return and he could see his mother's face. Your support will ensure a brighter future for more people like Murtaza."

SmileTrain write: "SmileTrain would like to extend a big thank you to all those involved with this special fundraising effort!

With your help, we will provide more free cleft surgeries this year than we ever thought opossible. The surgery you are helping us provide is really a modern day medical miracle. In as little as 45 minutes, for as little as £150, this surgery gives a desparate child not just a new smile, but a second chance at life!"
