*Imagine having the chance to see again following years’ of total darkness.
Winesi March, a 69-year-old grandfather who had lost his sight twelve years ago due to cataracts, was given that chance following a basic operation and wow, did he love what he saw.
Though Mr. March hasn’t even seen his own wife in more than a decade, he would probably agree there could no greater vision waiting for him than his grandson.
Thanks to a charity called Sightsavers, he was able to have his vision restored to make this possible.
The grandfather was full of smiles as his family and vlogger Doug Armstrong, who had been filming the bandage removal, greeted him.
‘I never imagined how Luka (his grandson) would look. I’m so happy to see him again,’ he said while sitting in a hospital in Malawi.
With his sight deteriorating over the past 12 years, March added this upon seeing his wife, ‘When I saw my wife today I thought to myself, I am meeting her twice. I am born again.’
As part of their ‘A Million Miracles’ campaign, Sightsavers wants to carry out one million cataract surgeries in third world countries. To help them out with donations, visit millionmiracles.org.
