bake sale success
Aashni and her mum Sujata have raised an incredible £735 from their cupcake sale! They baked for about 3 months and could hardly keep up with the orders.
Aashni and Sujata have requested that the money they donate go towards children's eye surgery. Dr Helen said, "We will be delighted to use it for children's surgery; we perform about 70 operations each year on children, most of them cataract surgery. The service is sight saving but expensive."

patients benefit from donations
Mwanaidi was identified in one of the outreaches in Kinango, a far off area from the Eye Centre. The thought of her being able to see again never crossed her mind.
The photos show her at Eye Centre after her cataract surgery. Before treatment, she was blind and had to be assisted in doing almost all tasks. "I can see again" she remarked as she thanked staff for supporting her. Her smile says it all.
