Gordane and Suhura had not been able to see each other for three years after cataracts stole their sight. Thanks to Sightsavers they both had sight-saving cataract surgery, giving them back their independence. And now eight months on, they are living life to the full.
When Sightsavers first met the couple, they struggled to get around, having to navigate around using sticks. “I do miss my wife,” Gordane said.
“There’s a lot I miss,” he added. “I braided mats, I braided beds. There is a mat inside, when you look at it, it looks like it was made by a machine. Now, this sickness has got me and those skills have faded.”
