If it weren’t for your help, little Ahla’a wouldn’t be able to see clearly today. She would be one more child suffering quietly, while her eyesight got progressively worse.
4 year-old Ahla’a has myopia. She wasn’t aware of her poor eyesight before. It was only when she started attending kindergarten recently that she started complaining about not being able to see things the other children could.
Ahla’a’s parents lost no time in bringing their daughter to Al-Mustafa Welfare Trust’s (AMWT) Medical Centre and Optometry Clinic, in Gaza City. Normally, they wouldn’t be able to afford the high cost of consulting an optometrist. So AMWT’s free eye-care service was a godsend.
Ahla’a was diagnosed and prescribed corrective glasses. She was given the chance to pick a pair of spectacles she liked, and the cost of these were also covered by our clinic. The ability to see clearly has given little Ahla’a a sense of confidence she never had before. She is more active and enjoys kindergarten a great deal more.
Al Mustafa Welfare Trust (AMWT) operates Eye-care clinics and mobile centres, in eight of the world’s poorest countries. To date, we’ve restored eye-sight to over 30,000 people across two continents. In most of the cases we encounter, blindness is avoidable, and eyesight is easy to correct.
