During July 2014 Doctors for Life had the opportunity to go to Malawi for a very successful and blessed outreach. We were able to do 129 cataract operations and an total of 562 glasses were handed out, as well as 62 protective sunglasses to patients after cataract operations were performed.
Many wonderful testimonies were received by the patients. The joy they expressed for being able to see again after being blind for so long, is evident in the following testimonies:
“I am so thankful to God and Doctors for Life to make me see again. I will be able to do all my domestic chores on my own now.” – Ellena Nankani “I am very, very happy and smile all day. I will now be able to cook for myself and do whatever I could not do for a long time now. Many thanks to God and Doctors for Life for visiting this area and to bring back my sight.” – Alisinet Likhomo “I am very happy. I was not able to tend to my garden anymore myself. Now that I am able to see again I will be able to do that. I thank God and Doctors for Life for healing me.” – Kenson Gwetsani “I am so happy to be able to read again. Now I can read my Bible and learn more about God. Thank you very much to God and Doctors for Live for coming to us and helping us.” – Chola Nchome “I dropped out of school many years ago because of bad eyesight. Now that I have received these glasses and can see well again. I want to go back to school and finish my education.” – Mary Chidi (72 years old)[caption id="attachment_1549" align="alignright" width="145"] After the operation[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1551" align="alignright" width="145"] Eye patches removed[/caption] [caption id="attachment_1550" align="alignright" width="145"] Sunglasses[/caption]]]>
