Born to a poor family in one of Pakistan's most impoverished regions, Akhmed lost his sight after a terrible fever at the tender age of 3.
"He is unable to eat on his own, we always have to feed him. He is always sitting on his own and can’t play with the rest of the kids his age. Its been two or three years that he has had this illness." (Shah Ali, Akhmed's father)
Shrouded in darkness, Akhmed spends his days isolated from other children his age, relying on his father to feed, dress and bathe him.
Just as his family began to lose hope that his condition would ever improve, Shah Ali sought help from the Muslim Hands eye clinic. With the help of our doctors on the ground, Shah Ali is hopeful that his son's sight will be restored and that he'll be able to see a future full of possibilities, like any other child his age.
