The incredible story of two sisters who see for the first time

Toma (11) and Ayada (7) were born with congenital cataracts. A condition that clouds sight with the build-up of protein in the lens of the eye.

“We heard about free eye treatments being held in the town through word of mouth. So I brought one of my daughters, Toma, to see if anything can be done about her blindness. I was just hoping, but never imagined her sight could be restored.”

– Mr Omar Saeed (father)
