1000 Blind People are Helped by Youtube Star MrBeast by Sponsoring Surgeries.
MrBeast is making the world more transparent for at least 1,000 people.
The content creator is paying for the surgery for 1,000 people who couldn’t afford it because they were blind or near-blind.
The first round of surgeries were performed in Jacksonville, Florida, by Jeff Levenson, an ophthalmologist and surgeon.
Half of all blind people in the world need a 10-minute surgery to remove their cataracts, according to the video.
They started by calling homeless shelters and free clinics and creating a list of patients in the Jacksonville area who could not afford the surgery.
Levenson had a group of 40 patients and performed all their surgeries in a single day.The last time was at 6 p.m.
Patients were in disbelief that somebody would actually seek them out to rescue them from blindness, and then have the kindness and generosity of spirit to offer the surgery according to the ophthalmologist.
Donaldson was helped reach more patients by the organization, for a total of 1,000 surgeries.
The organization gives free eye care to patients in need around the world.
If MrBeast can light a fire, and if we can get governmental and private support behind it, we can end half of all the blindness in this world.
