John was a ‘star pupil’ at school — top of his class! He loved maths most of all, and dreamed of becoming an engineer to build houses. But his bright future was fading away — because John was going needlessly blind from cataracts.
John said, “I can’t read well when my eyesight is blurred and I can’t study well. If I can’t go to school, I’ll be sad.”
But thanks to the kindness of wonderful CBM supporters like you, John was able to have the sight-saving surgery he urgently needed. When his bandages were removed, he was so excited to open his eyes and discover that he could see clearly.
John can see, thanks to kind hearts like yours. And you can do the same for another child just like him when you give one of our Meaningful Gifts of Sight this Christmas.
