Eyesight and to see the world is one of the greatest blessings from God to us. Ask a person who could see and now has become blind due to night blindness or retinitis pigmentosa (RP). I met such a person, Akram Lodhi, who had become blind due to RP. He is now the Chairman of the Vision Foundation (http://visionfoundation.org.pk/) and helping the blind children in Pakistan.
I took a deeper look into this ill fated disease and did some research on night blindness. I was shocked to read the harsh facts. The WHO estimates 13.8 million children to have some degree of visual loss related to vitamin A deficiency. Approximately 500,000 children in the developing world go blind each year from insufficient vitamin A. Approximately half of those children die within a year of becoming blind. http://www.who.int/nutrition/topics/vad/en/
In order to see the problem first hand, I traveled to a village about 50 KM outside Karachi, Pakistan. I could not believe my eyes when I saw the plight of the night blind children.
I thought that blindness is an incurable disease but to my surprise I saw the positive results, who after taking natural food supplements, Spirulina and Reishi mushroom could see after a few months. That was the time, I decided to join hands in this noble cause.
Through our humble efforts, DXN network and support of people around the world, I promise to help as many children as possible to get back their eyesight. Since the project started in Pakistan, I will continue to see further results and take this mission further to India, Bangladesh, Nepal, The Philippines, Africa and the rest of the world.
The project is huge and the total cost for 6 months for one child is about $700. My appeal to you is to come forward, take one blind child and help her/him so that they can see the world. Or just donate any amount of Spirulina and Reishi. Please get in touch with Mr. Akram Lodhi and donate via, http://visionfoundation.org.pk/index.php/donate/
God bless you.
