All had been blind and now all could see.
Parbati stared at the concrete ceiling. She tried to stay calm and still. A doctor gently touched her shoulder and told her everything would be okay. And then, in just 15 minutes, it was over. Parbati, once blind, had received the life-changing cataract surgery that restored her sight.
The next morning, Parbati stood under the soaring pine trees of a Nepali mountainside. She was with Maya, her elderly mother-in-law, and Ganga, her 23-year-old daughter. All three women had been blind. Now they could all see.
For so many years, these three women from three generations of the same family suffered the burden of blindness.
The change to their lives was miraculous. Parbati, Maya, and Ganga can now live their lives to their full potential.
