Children Like Banh can now enjoy school and thrive in life

Before and After
Before and After

8-year-old Bui Cong Danh lives with his family in a 10-square-meter rented flat in a community block with poor living conditions. Both parents are labourers and they struggle financially.  

Danh suffered from severe congenital strabismus that made daily activities very challenging. His father told us that Danh has also developed dementia, and somehow, mental retardation. It was a very difficult time for the family. The condition also delayed his progress in school. Despite being an 8-year old boy, he will be in the first grade this year.

Danh’s father recounted how his son was teased continually in school at first. This affected Danh’s confidence even though he loved going to school.

Danh’s eyesight was restored after he got an eye examination and surgery in Can Tho Eye Hospital, Vietnam.

Now that he can see clearly, he is happy to remind his classmates how important it is to take good care of their eyesight. Having always dreamt of being a football star when he grows up, Danh’s skills are improving in leaps and bounds. His parents are so proud of him as they see the way he dribbles the football and want to thank all Orbis’s supporters for giving him good sight and a chance in life. Danh’s determination to overcome adversity is such a great inspiration to other children.

Danh is one of the hundred children who received surgeries provided by the trained doctors in another project at Mekong Delta sponsored by a wonderful foundation. Your funding to “Give Sight Children in Vietnam” enables us to help other children in the same way.

We will be able to develop capacity for local partners in eye hospitals in other provinces to help children and elderly with visual impairment and other avoidable eye-health conditions that are identified and diagnosed at early stages. Thank you for granting beneficiaries like Banh to access high quality and affordable eyecare services.
