Seeing is Believing is Standard Chartered's global fundraising program that helps eradicate avoidable blindness. There are 39 million blind people in the world. Yet, 80% of blindness is avoidable. Since the launch of the program in 2003, we have already raised USD92.8 million and reached over 133.8 million people. By 2020, we aim to fundraise US$100 million for Seeing is Believing. Standard Chartered will match all donations, dollar for dollar.
