Story- Born With Cataracts

Story from our Ophthalmologist, Dr. Wendy H.

Meet Maman Mossinga and her grandson Gabriel, 4 years old. 

Maman Mossinga says that every day Gabriel would eat with his food about 3 inches from his eyes- he couldn’t see due to the cataracts he was born with.  

Her husband is handicapped and not working, and maman Mossinga spends her days cultivating crops. She worried that at her age she would not be able to raise a blind child.  

Through donations that Bongolo Hospital received, we were able to remove Gabriel’s cataracts. Mossinga says, “The words escape me.  I danced, I praised the Lord!” 

What’s really fun, though, is to watch Gabriel. While speaking with his grandmother for about 10 minutes, he never stopped looking all over the place, fascinated by everything there was to see.
