Eight months ago, Faridah Nakalyango a resident of Masaka, Uganda gave birth to a bouncing baby Tasha Nakigudde.
All was well until the baby opened her eyes.
Faridah says when the child first opened the eyes, there was a milky coating, upon check up, the the doctors said the child could not see.
All diagnosis reveal that the child has an eye condition called primary congenital Glaucoma.
Consequently, the baby has since been blind. On the outside, the eyes are visibly swollen, while closer look at them reveals how unstable they are in the eye case.
Doctors she has visited have recommended a cornea implant which is pretty expensive and worse still cannot be done here in Uganda.
Faridah has no option left but to look for 20 million to take the child for an operation in India. Unfortunately, she cannot raise the money by herself, she is only appealing to people of good hearts to give her a hand if her child’s sight is to be restored.
Faridah, who is a mother of two is also worried because her first born who got an accident that made one of her eyes blind. She seems the most unfortunate woman, having two blind children with the blindness arrived at in two different ways.
These are true tears of a mother…
Let us help Faridah live as a happy mother.
