In partnership with The John Fawcett Foundation, Rainbow of Hope are pleased to announce that with your help, we helped 2,338 women, men and children with the gift of sight last year. Without your support, these people would have stayed blind. On behalf of all these people, we thank you for your continuing support that enables us to change their lives in such a significant way.
We recently helped Rimayanti (pictured above), an eight-year-old girl from Lombok. She had been blind since birth and had never seen her parents, let alone learn to read and write at school. We brought her to Bali where she was operated by our senior ophthalmic surgeon.
When she first opened her eyes after the surgery she kept holding her father’s hand in total disbelief about the world that was opening up around her. A new life has begun for Rimayanti.
