HIMALAYAN CATARACT PROJECT: Iftu Ahemmed in Bisidimo, Ethiopia - February 2021

Iftu Ahemmed became blind 6 months ago from cataracts in both eyes. Three of those months were spent in complete darkness. Iftu traveled to a recent surgical outreach at Bisidimo Hospital in Ethiopia. She will never forget the day she was told that her condition is curable.

“Now, I have my vision back thanks to HCP. It is like being born again and I am super excited to go back to school.“

During the global pandemic, it's even more important for HCP to reach under-served and vulnerable populations and to focus on bringing care to those who need it most.
