Reporter: ICVAL'S

STRUGGLE TO SUPPORT HIS

CHILDREN IN SOUTHERN INDIA,

ALL OF THE MONEY HE SAVED

WAS SPENT ON GETTING HELP

FOR HIS WIFE, WHO WAS

SUFFERING FROM BONE CANCER.

WE MOVED FOR TREATMENT.

WE WERE THERE FOR TWO

YEARS.

BUT SHE NEVER GOT BETTER.

AND EVENTUALLY DIED.

Terry: HIS SON,

MOHAMMED, WANTED TO HELP

BRING IN SOME INCOME, BUT HE

HAD A CATARACT IN HIS LEFT

EYE.

I WOULD LIKE TO WORK AS

AN AUTO MECHANIC, BUT THAT

CAN'T HAPPEN UNLESS I CAN

SEE CLEARLY.

WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY

TO PAY FOR MOHAMMED'S EYE

SURGERY.

WE ASKED ALL OF OUR FRIENDS,

BUT NO ONE WAS WILLING TO

HELP.

Terry: THEN THEY HEARD

ABOUT A HOSPITAL THAT

PARTNERED WITH CBN.

WHEN WE TOOK HIM TO THE

HOSPITAL, THEY TOLD US THAT

THEY WOULD GIVE US A FREE

CATARACT SURGERY.

Terry: WHEN THE BANDAGE

WAS REMOVED, IT WAS A GREAT

DAY FOR MOHAMMED AND HIS

FATHER.

THIS MEANS SO MUCH TO

US.

THE SURGERY HAS MADE IT

POSSIBLE FOR MY SON TO BE

INDEPENDENT.

Terry: NOT LONG AFTER

THAT, MOHAMMED STARTED

ON-THE-JOB TRAINING IN AN

AUTO SHOP.

HE IS LEARNING THE TRADE

QUICKLY SO HE CAN HELP

SUPPORT HIS FAMILY.

YOU NOT ONLY GAVE ME A

FREE CATARACT SURGERY, YOU

GAVE ME A NEW LIFE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.
