Two of the Ebola orphans at the Dream Home orphanage, Aisha & Mabinty, need prescription eye glasses. This is needed for general use and for reading. This will enable them to see the blackboard (at the front of the class) more clearly. This will also reduce strain on their eyes and help them do better in school. This project will cover the cost of eye exams and prescription glasses for both girls.
Aisha & Mabinty have explained to us that they find it difficult to read the words on the blackboard. They have to squint to read the words. Preliminary examination with a visiting US doctor has confirmed that they need glasses. They have a definite need for prescription glasses.
Funds from this project will cover cost of the eye exams and prescription glasses for Aisha & Mabinty. The glasses will correct their vision and help them read better.
Aisha & Mabinty will be able to participate and perform better in class. Being a better student will also position them better for future success. Having eye glasses will enhance their future success.
