Sabina’s journey from blindness to sight is a beautiful example of the joy you can bring into the world through your Meaningful Gifts this Christmas.
When she was 9 years old, Sabina was sent home from school by her teacher because she was having trouble seeing. Sabina’s mother was desperately worried for her daughter.
“Sabina says that she cannot see objects from certain distance. She cannot see properly after sunset. She stretches her hands to feel the objects around her.”
Sabina was going needlessly blind from cataracts in both her eyes. Even worse, without immediate surgery, she risked losing her sight completely.
But thanks to the kindness of wonderful CBM supporters like you, Sabina was able to have the surgery she urgently needed. And when we asked her about her hopes for the future, she told us with a big smile, “I want to be a teacher when I grow up!”
Now she can, thanks to kindness like yours. And you can do the same for another child just like her if you give one of our Meaningful Gifts of Sight this Christmas.
