See the Change: Thursday

Henry Juta, Chief Clinical Officer at Nkhotakota District Hospital, is training to become a cataract surgeon. He tells us what it will mean for him, and the people of Nkhotakota...

Dani's bandages are removed

As the bandage is removed just after 8am on Thursday morning, Dani’s face is filled with joy. His faith and courage have paid off and he can see again in his right eye.

“I’m so glad that this was part of God’s plan!”. 

Immediately, he phones his wife and sons to share the good news. He is determined to share his story with all those who discouraged him from coming for treatment, to reassure others that they should seek help if they have eye problems.

 “I am going to explain every detail of the process....I’ll tell them my eye was there the whole time and the doctors didn’t remove it. I am going to help clear the misunderstanding around cataracts”.

Dani's bandages are removed after cataract surgery. He is smiling,
Dani is home. He is smiling because he can see his farm again. He is holding a farming tool.

Back home in the afternoon, Dani looks out over his farm and the hillside.

“I thought that place was no longer there. It was as if it has disappeared...I was not able to see those hills now I can see them clearly”.  

He tells his wife about his experiences and the couple are overjoyed:

“I am very thankful to God that I was able to benefit from this and I pray others are able to continue to benefit from this as I have. I was worried but now I am free”.

Prayer of the Day

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord.” Colossians 3:23

Today, Almighty God, we thank you for the skill of all those involved in sight-restoring cataract surgery. Thank you for the training provided through CBM’s See the Way project, and for all the CBM supporters who gave towards it. We thank you for medical staff like Henry who are being trained to perform cataract surgeries in local hospitals, for their dedication, and their hard work. We pray for all those delivering surgeries to be skilful and successful in their work. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
