9-year old Nkosinathi Feni gets to see again.
I believe this is a great case for your funds. This boy is 9 years old. He has bilateral cataracts (both eyes) that is affecting his vision. He can only see 6/60, which means he can see at 6 meters what you and I can see at 60!
So the long and short is that he is basically blind because of the cataracts, that can be removed with a simple procedure. His vision loss is affecting his school work and will ultimately be the cause of illeteracy etc.
I have attahced 2 quotes for your referral. You will see on the one we have quoted for the IOL's (intra occular lenses) as well. I have contacted our supplier to see if they could possibly sponsor this, but cannot guarentee that they will be able to do so. Please note that the quote is only for the consumables that will be used in theatre. The surgeon and anaesthesiologist have agreed to offer their time and Centuruin Eye Hospital have offered the theatre time for free.
This procedure will cost a patient with a medical aid in the facinity of R26
000 (per eye), so you can understand why the mother cannot afford this very needed procedure for her child.
Please note that the surgeon has agreed to operate both eyes at the same time to reduce further medical costs as well as transport cost for the patient from Lichtenburg.
I look forward to hear from you!
