Said is 5 years old and has been with us at Tumaini since January ’07. He had very little sight and therefore struggled to learn with other children who are able to see. Around two months ago, following tests, our Special Needs teacher Mr Kibe was told that Said could undergo an operation to gain some sight and that as he is below 7 years of age, there’s a good chance of success. The operation took place last week and Said is now recovering. The surgeon made a hole in the lens of both eyes to allow light to pass through to the retina. Said is able to see more than he could see before and he has a check up on 26th June. Please pray that his eyes heal quickly and that Said gains good sight.
