SMALL CHANGE for BIG CHANGE

'Small Change for Big Change’ is our innovative fundraising partnership with Arjun Waney's London restaurants Roka, Zuma, Coya and La Petite Maison. A voluntary donation of £1 is added to every bill and 100% goes directly towards our work in eliminating cataract blindness – the world’s leading cause of blindness. Together we’ve funded over 42,000 life transforming cataract surgeries through this initiative.

Small Change:

It’s simple. £1 is automatically added to every restaurant bill.

There’s no VAT and all administrative costs are covered to ensure 100% of the donation is sent directly to our curable blindness projects in rural India and Nigeria.

Big Change: When a persons’ sight is restored the impact is far greater than the individual. A mother with her sight restored no longer needs to rely on her children to get by; they can return to school and she can go back to work, securing a better future for her family. Restoring sight restores livelihoods – it strengthens whole communities. Nobody should have to live or die blind due to cataract.

WHY CATARACTS & CURABLE BLINDNESS?

We chose to work in rural areas with a high incidence of blindness and limited access to eye care. 19 million people worldwide are blind from cataract yet cataracts are easily treatable with surgery. It’s a simple procedure performed by a surgeon which takes less than 1 hour and restores a person’s sight. A cataract operation is one of the most cost effective anti- poverty actions. Our goal is simple; to work with eye hospitals to eliminate curable blindness by ensuring people have access to high quality eye surgery and ophthalmic care.

We have been supporting the Savitri Trust at Zuma since we opened in 2002. It has been an honour and a pleasure for us all to be involved.
