73, Addis Ababa
“I lost my vision in both my eyes in a period of six months. Blindness took away my active life of attending to my daily needs and interacting with my family. After a doctor in Grarbet in Zeway operated my left eye, my vision was restored. I cried when I saw my own son from a distant after almost three years of blindness.
It is hard for me to leave this place because it is a place where I feel I have been reborn. I am so happy to rush back to Addis Ababa to see my grandchildren for the first time since they were born during my three years of blindness.”
