An untreated cataract in a child like Craig means they can be blind for life. Sadly, for many Indigenous communities, access to quality eye care is still a challenge.
Hao went blind at just five. Once a cheeky kid, he became withdrawn and couldn’t go to school. His father feared Hao would die.
This man has been through more than any of us can ever imagine – Cambodia’s tragic past, a landmine explosion and after all of that, cataract blindness
H’Nhi’s mum wanted a better life for her only girl. So to get H'Nhi treatment for her cataract, her family had to borrow money just to get to the eye clinic.
When Kipar's family discovered his sight was treatable, Kipar and his father walked 25km in the extreme Kenyan heat to save his eyesight.
His father died soon after losing his sight and Reggie feared the same thing would happen to him before he could pass on his knowledge to the next generation.
