This 12 year old boy instantly found a place in my heart three weeks ago just before I returned to Ireland. I think it was because of the most human way he cared for his severely malnourished little sister. He is blind or so we were told. One of our staff noticed that he appeared to have some sight and from there he was taken to an eye specialist and through simple vitamin A injections he has gone from 10% sight to 30%. They tell me that the Doctor believes that he will gain some more sight although irreversible damage has been done.

As beautiful as this story is it is as equally shocking and sad that this can happen to the children in our world. My Hand to yours I offer to you little man.
