You may remember reading about the family: it was immediately clear they were suffering. All three children had visible trachoma, with weepy eyes, discharge and constant eye rubbing – and Inutu’s case looked particularly severe.
Trachoma surgeon Ndalela, head of the eye department at Senanga Health Clinic, examined Inutu first and confirmed that without treatment she would be blind within three years.
With the help of amazing sight-savers like you, we made sure that Ndalela could treat them and many other families living in this remote, hard-to-reach region.
The siblings were suffering the pain and misery of trachoma. But scroll through the image gallery below to see the transformation.
