MCA Canada's Charity of Choice
MCA Canada’s Charity of Choice is Operation Eyesight Universal, an initiative that aims to wipe out trachoma, a disease that causes blindness. Since 1963, Operation Eyesight has helped save the vision of more than 35 million people—simply by providing them with access to clean water and basic sanitation.

To date, MCA Canada and its members have generously raised enough money to build 30 wells through Operation Eyesight. Let’s keep up the great work. Consider giving to Operation Eyesight this holiday season.
