Samuel tells us how he has feared for his safety since developing cataract in both his eyes and losing his sight.
“I don’t like not being able to see who’s coming,” Samuel says. “It makes me feel scared.”
Already struggling to read in school and play football with his friends, losing his sight has been affecting his happiness. His mother fears for his future:
“The people at church pray for him and his eyes every day”
An operation can help Samuel see again. But his family haven’t been able to afford the transport to hospital, let alone the cost of surgery.
Like Samuel, so many children in Nigeria are being robbed of their potential, simply because their families cannot afford the medical treatment they desperately need to save their sight. You can change this.
