cbm envisions an inclusive world in which all persons with disabilities enjoy their human rights and achieve their full potential...


Thanks to generous people like you, 4-year-old Obed received sight-saving cataract surgery at the Kabgayi Eye Clinic in Rwanda.

By partnering with cbm you can directly help those living with the double disadvantage of poverty and disability. Your impact will be amplified through cbm's proven partner networks, creating a ripple effect that extends far beyond what is possible on its own. cbm partnerships exist at both the grassroots and strategic level creating a catalyst for immediate and lasting change.

cbm works alongside people with disabilities in the world’s poorest places to fight poverty and exclusion and transform lives. With over 100 years’ experience, and driven by Christian values, cbm works with the most marginalised in society to break the cycle of poverty and disability, treat and prevent conditions that lead to disability, and build inclusive communities where everyone can enjoy their human rights and achieve their full potential.

More about us

cbm (formerly known as the Christian Blind Mission) was founded by the German Pastor, Ernst Jakob Christoffel in Turkey in 1908. His pioneering work, establishing homes for blind children, orphans and the physically disabled in the Middle East and Asia, was driven by his deep faith in God. Although two world wars threatened to destroy his work, he did not give up, continuing the work through illness and into old age. Today cbm continues in his footsteps, as an international Christian development organisation, working to improve the quality of life of the world’s poorest persons with disabilities.

He was unable to perform his daily chores or tend to his cattle. No more whittling cooking utensils for sale at the market. His blindness was so extreme, he could not even go to the toilet alone. Humiliated, his self-esteem crumbled.
