Njiruzalo has been blind in one eye since she was a child. Her education suffered and as a result she has always struggled to find work, earn money and feed her family.
“I am a single mother, taking care of these children alone. I spend my day looking for work, I struggle to put food on the table. My husband left me, it’s hard to cope without any help as all of us are blind. How can we help each other?”
Now her three boys, Malekano, Vincent and Richard, are also going blind and Njiruzalo is desperately worried about what the future holds for them.
“I worry because my children can’t see. Other children can easily go to school, but my children cannot see. They can’t walk to school by themselves. They can’t write at all and can’t read either.”
Your generosity today means CBM Community Workers can travel to remote and impoverished villages and towns searching for people who need help to avoid going blind.
