A glass eye for Lirat
Four years ago, Lirat and her family were home when their whole neighborhood was attacked. Shelling hit her right in the eye. She came to Lebanon in dire need of help, and went to numerous hospitals searching for a doctor to take care of her eye.
Unfortunately, her eye couldn’t be saved and had to be removed. Lirat lost her eye, and with it her self-esteem. Losing an eye is a very difficult injury to deal with, especially for children who need our help to cope.
Lirat met with INARA, and we took on her case and decided to sponsor her immediately after our first encounter! After a first assessment, a plan was put in place for her recovery. She underwent a reconstructive surgery for her eye with a specialized team of doctors working with INARA, and received her prosthetic eye shortly after! We can see the sparkles of joy in her eyes thanks to your generous donations that have changed this little girl’s life forever.
After: Smile restored!
