Restoring Sight to Haitian Children
Goal: $110 for 1 child’s cataract surgery
About this Mission Project
Many children in Haiti are malnourished; their mothers had no pre-natal care and they don’t wear sunglasses in the unrelenting tropical sun. These factors mean that children develop cataracts at an early age.
Life in Haiti is difficult for all but without eyesight it is impossible to go to school and have any chance of a better future.
The Cap Haitien Eye Clinic could change the lives of scores of children, just as Jesus restored sight to the blind. This project is an excellent illustration of how Christian love when strangers make it possible for them to have cataract surgery and restore their eyesight.
$110 would pay for a child to have cataract surgery and glasses. $250 would provide glasses for five children after cataract surgery. $500 would cover the cost for surgery on 10 children, or provide 10 pairs of glasses.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $2,640 per month. The purpose is to provide 24 children each month with cataract operations plus provide glasses to children that need them. The number affected will be determined by the amount of funds we receive.
This project will be managed by IM missionary Nzunga Mabudiga at the Cap Haitien Eye Clinic.
Hundreds of children could benefit from this project annually improving their health and creating opportunities for education and employment.
Connect to this Mission ProjectPray with Nzunga Mabudiga and the staff of the Cap Haitien Eye Clinic that God will be gloried, patients having their sight restored will help them understand that Christian’s love of Jesus made it possible, and they will choose to follow Jesus themselves because of the loving care they received.
