Two Blind Sisters See For the First Time
This post has two important points to make:
- How life changing it is to go from total blindness to total sight overnight
- How easy it is to give sight to an estimated 20 million blind adults and children in the world
A Heartwarming Story of Two Blind Sisters
First, lets look at a single family in India with not one but two children blind since birth. The family is too poor to even hope for some kind of medical miracle. A doctor in this field says that parents in these situations are resigned to having their children become beggars.
Take a look at this video and as you do, think about the amount of change that this family will experience - literally - overnight.
Wow! Two lives enriched beyond measure for $600. I call that miraculous.
As soon as the "miracles" settled into my brain and heart, I began to wonder about the organization that made them possible. The organization is WonderWork and this is its Mission Statement.
I studied the WunderWork website and was very impressed with all aspects of the organization from its mission to its concept of training and equipping local doctors, its All Star Board of Directors and its frugal, transparent and efficient financial approach.
I encourage you to look over the site at:
Both my wife and I couldn't get past the "miracle" of this life changing surgery that costs only $300.
We traveled to Tanzania a few years ago on a photo safari and saw the primitive conditions that the tribal peoples live with and accept as normal. These conditions include only minimal medical care directed mostly at providing clean water and multiple disease immunizations to babies and children.
Tanzania is one of the countries that Wonderwork has targeted.
We have decided to support WonderWork. We consider a radically improved life for $300 a great investment.
We humbly ask you to check them out and consider supporting them, too.
