The gift of sight is so precious . . . Manisha was born with cataracts in both eyes, and by the time we were able to reach her and help her, it was almost too late to save her sight.
Manisha is just an ordinary little girl. She likes to run around and play with her friends, it’s just, she can’t always keep up. She loves going to school, even though she can’t see the letters on the blackboard. And despite not being able to see more than a metre or so, she tries really hard to help her mum and dad around the house.
Manisha was born with cataracts in both her eyes. At first, they were tiny, just two little white dots. But as Manisha grew, the cataracts grew too. She finally reached a point where she was close to going completely and permanently blind.
But fortunately a CBM Outreach Worker visited her village in time. She was assessed and quickly referred for urgent surgery, which – thanks to amazing CBM supporters like you – went perfectly.
Manisha doesn’t have to sit at the front of her class anymore, and helping out at home and playing with her friends is now easy! More importantly, her future is a bright one!
