Sight for the Blind

Christians have been among those who have suffered most in Sudan’s seemingly endless civil war that claimed two million lives, destroyed hospitals and much of the South’s infrastructure. Although South Sudan finally won its independence in July 2011, the development of the country will take time. Many Christians in remote villages do not have access to medical treatment and often live with easily curable diseases like blindness.

For that reason, ICC funds several eye camps every year, restoring sight to hundreds of people. At an ICC-funded eye camp in July, for example, 74 cataract operations were performed and an additional 209 people were treated.

“I had been blind since 2009 with a lot of problems,” Deng Michael, from Lomuku village, told ICC. “But, now I can see and I really thank God and for making me see again! I had lost hope in life, but God brought back my sight. I also give many thanks to ICC for encouraging us to be treated of sickness and eye problems. At first I was scared, but now I am so happy. Thank you ICC!”
