Mission Statement: Sightsavers' vision is of a world where no one is blind from avoidable causes, and where vision impaired people participate equally in society. New operations: Sightsavers has recently changed its operating presence in the United States so that we can operate more seamlessly with our global operations in over 30 countries. Sightsavers Inc. was newly incorporated in Missouri in November 2015 as a 501 (c)(3) non-profit (EIN: 47-4657747), to which we have transferred all of our US institutional and individual fundraising operations. These activities formerly operated under Sightsavers International, Inc., a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit incorporated in Delaware in 2000 (EIN: 31-1740776). Sightsavers International Inc. will continue to operate for the exclusive purpose of distributing the drug Mectizan® to treat the neglected tropical disease onchocerciasis (river blindness) in targeted African countries, through an in-kind drug donation from Merck & Co., Inc. that is valued at over $200 million annually. We will continue to include financial and program data of Sightsavers International, Inc. alongside that of Sightsavers Inc. in our publications and on platform profiles to provide the most transparent and comprehensive picture of Sightsavers activities in the US.
