If you could watch Margil hold coloured pencils close to her eyes, you’d see she’s almost completely blinded by cataracts. In fact, without a simple operation, this lovely little girl will spend her whole life in darkness.
Margil needs a miracle. So it’s wonderful that August is CBM’s Miracle Month!
This month, CBM supporters like you have the chance to restore sight to someone like Margil. All you have to do is donate a $32 ‘miracle’ cataract operation!
This operation takes less than 12 minutes, yet the result is so powerful it’s like a Miracle has taken place!
I might not be able to take you into the operating theatre, but I can invite you to come on a journey with me for a few moments. Will you come with me to Margil’s little house? They live in the Philippines, in a small corrugated iron shed (rain pours through every crack).
You can see Margil through the gloom – she’s standing very close to her protective big brother, Aljon. Tragically, he is blind too.
With despair in her voice, their mum, May says, “I feel very helpless because of their deficiency in eyesight. But I hope someday they can reach their dreams...” Can you imagine being a mother, desperately poor with nothing but an iron shack – and your two precious children unable to see?
I hope you can also see why this family needs a Miracle….
For just $32, you can give a Miracle Cataract operation
to restore sight to someone like Margil.
Please join us this August, to make Miracles possible in the life of the world’s poorest children.
We’re aiming to give 30,000 sight-saving
Yet we need you...
Please give your Miracle now!
