Akhmed Wali Case Study

Muslim Hands
Akhmed Wali, a little boy from Pakistan, lost his eyesight after a terrible fever at the tender age of 3. He sits isolated, shrouded in darkness, unable to play or read books with children his age. He is dependent on his father to bathe, dress and feed him daily and sits all alone in his own world, having little to no interaction with the outside world. It has now been almost three years that this little boy has been in this condition.
Due to his family being very poor, his father, Shah Ali, could not afford the cost of surgery. When Muslim Hands established their free eye camps in Pakistan, Shah Ali sought help from our team for his son. With the help of our professional doctors on the ground, Akhmed’s family is now hopeful that his eyesight can be restored.
Cataract surgery is a simple yet life changing procedure, however, millions of less fortunate people across the world are unable to afford it. Muslim Hands eye camps provide free screenings, pre and post operation care, medication and free cataract removal surgeries to all those less fortunate who are in need. Donate now towards our eye-camps or cataract removal surgeries and help children like Akhmed have a chance to a better future.

For as little as R300 you also can help change the life of a child and bring hope back to their life. Donate today and help give the gift of sight to the sightless.
