Zahemen Has Now Gotten A Free Eye Surgery!

At age 5, Zahemen Gabriel Bako suddenly could not see with his left eye. He struggled with this challenge for 10 years. According to his father, “all he could feel was pain which caused him serious discomfort. In fact, he could not read properly and would often skip school on days he is having severe headaches. We try to plead with his teachers to let him sit in front of the class and on days he wasn’t able to go to school, his peers will bring their notes home for him.”

This gravely affected his academic performance. As a result Zahemen experienced academic delays. Because he couldn’t do things his pairs could do easily. So on one of Operation Blessing’s Medical Brigades at Abwa, Benue State, his father brought him. Finally, the doctors examined his eyes and found the problem and Zahemen’s eye was operated on, free of charge. Today, he sees perfectly with both eyes!

“My family has spent a lot on his eye and to no avail. But here we are today with my boy having this surgery done at no cost after years of hoping. It is only God that can reward Operation Blessing. I am grateful and I appreciate your organization’s effort,” Mr Bako said.

Zahemen has fully recovered.
