One day, when Kyle was playing with his friends, they ran through some trees. Small twigs from these trees got into Kyle’s eyes. It happened in a matter of seconds, but it was enough to change Kyle’s life.
Kyle’s mum April remembered her fear seeing that Kyle was hurt…
“We were afraid of him not being able to see again. So we brought him to the doctor for his eyes to be checked. We found out that it was cataracts.”
This sort of accident could happen to anyone… But the difference is that if this happened here in Australia, a child would receive immediate surgery to treat the cataracts. The damage would be repaired right away… saving their sight before it was lost.
But surgery was not an option for Kyle.
His family is barely earning enough money to buy food to survive each day.
There is simply no extra money for them to pay for the surgery Kyle needs.
April said, “We cannot afford to bring Kyle for the surgery. We pray hard that somebody could be used by God to help us out with our child’s cataracts.”
Now is the time to act for children like Kyle. Because the combined generosity of you and our Hope Growers will help give twice the sight and twice the hope.
“My hope for Kyle’s future is to be able to graduate from school, and at the same time he would be able to land a good job… and someday, he would be able to be independent, support himself, and be happy.”
– April, Kyle’s mum
A Father’s Hope
“My only dream for Kyle is for him to be able to reach for his heart’s desire, and for his dream as well. I just want him to be faithful in his school, in his study and to learn well, because I also want him to graduate.”
– Edmond, Kyle’s dad
