A CHANCE OF PERSPECTIVE
Ionuț was going through a hard time at school, with his colleagues bullying him because he had strabismus and because he was poor. His parents could not even afford the cost of a consultation, let alone that of a surgery, so they turned to Diaconia for help. We took Ionuț to an ophthalmologist and bought him proper glasses. Over six months he will have another medical check, and then the doctor will decide if surgery will be needed. In the meantime, Ionuț advanced in school and for him and his family this is a breakthrough, especially since his parents are both illiterate. Ionuț's family wants to thank everyone who donated for him. Ionuţ is happy because he goes to school with glasses that allow him to see better and his colleagues are not teasing him anymore.
