We heard from Debbie- a committed volunteer who spends a lot of time in Athens, that a young Syrian man was in desperate need for some specialist lenses that might stop him going blind in the long run.
Without the lenses and appropriate treatment- serious complications could occur. A specialist eye doctor stepped forward to do the work for free, but money was needed for the lenses.
Thanks to your support, we have been able to fund these lenses, and the eye doctor will carry out the work on him including 6 monthly check ups for free.
This young man left Syria over a year ago, and like so many others has been stuck in limbo in Greece. He is living in a squat in Athens where he’s helped by some of the other residents.
Thank you for helping to make a difference. We need continued support so we can do more, help more and reach more people. If you can help-please visit our donate page
