Name: Suborna Age: Eight Lives: Bangladesh SUBORNA had cataracts in her eyes and couldn’t see the board at school.
Before Suborna’s operation, her father said: “Her eyes are rolling and she cannot focus on things. She cannot read properly and she has to use her hands.” After the surgery, Suborna said: “I am feeling well. I can see better than before the operation. Previously I couldn’t see clearly. Now I can see more clearly. I am feeling happy…”
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.
