You can help Shalom break free from a cruel cycle of poverty and disability, for good

A child with untreated cataracts is a child whose opportunities are slipping away… 

Every day, Shalom’s hopes and dreams are a little further away. All it takes to help her see again, and to succeed, is your kindness.  

Cataract surgery in both her eyes will restore this little girl’s sight, but her family are too poor to pay for it.  

Will you donate today, to help Shalom see again, and to succeed? 

You can help Shalom get the sight-restoring cataract surgery she needs, before it’s too late.  

You can help Shalom break free from a cruel cycle of poverty and disability, for good

Every day, Shalom sits alone on the veranda, playing with her doll. She’s no longer able to play with the other children.  

Instead, they jeer at her: Eh Shalom talaba! Oh, Shalom is blind! 

Her mum Fridah says, 

“The other children won’t play with her. Everything happens too fast for her. She is ignored and knocked down. She cries and comes to me, and plays in solitude.”  

Play is a critical part of childhood, because it teaches children how to socialise and interact with others. If Shalom doesn’t get the sight-restoring surgery she needs, she could be held back for the rest of her life. 

You can help Shalom SEE, and SUCCEED.  

It’s not just play that Shalom is missing out on. Her teachers told Fridah to take Shalom out of school, because she can no longer see the blackboard.  

If Shalom cannot get back to school, what chance does she have of an education, gaining skills, and earning a living?  

Without help, Shalom will remain trapped in a cruel cycle of poverty and disability.  

Please help Shalom break free from poverty and disability by making a kind gift today. 

Help her SEE. 

Help her SUCCEED. 

That’s the awesome power you hold in your hands right now. You can give Shalom the chance to see again, go back to school and have an education.  

Because of you, Shalom can chase her dream of having an independent future. Her mum tells us that Shalom wants to be nurse when she grows up.  

Will you help make that dream a reality?  

Restore Shalom’s sight with a precious gift today and make her dreams a reality. 

“May the favour of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us – yes, establish the work of our hands.”

Psalm 90:17
