Name: Sumaiya Age: Eight Lives: Bangladesh SUMAIYA had cataracts, which meant that she couldn’t see properly and found school difficult.
Once Sumaiya had the operation, her grandmother said: “After returning home I was very happy and so was Sumaiya. Sumaiya is seeing better… Sumaiya’s life will be easier now because she will be able to read and write.”
Sightsavers, supported by the UK Government, has launched a final push towards providing a million cataract operations. The Million Miracles UK Aid Match appeal supports projects in Pakistan, Bangladesh and elsewhere.
