"Why are you so happy?" "Because my mom can see again!" -Luz
Three years ago, Luz's mother, Dayli, was diagnosed with cataracts. The disease progressed rapidly and soon Dayli had no vision in her right eye, and only 20% in her left. Her daughters had to help her to do every-day tasks, like cooking and crossing the street.
When an MMI team visited her community in La Guajira, Colombia, a few weeks ago, Dayli was able to have surgery on her cataracts. After three years of struggling to see, Dayli's sight has been restored! “The first thing I saw was the face of the doctor, I felt great happiness" Dayla says, "I could not stop crying... [I feel that] God loves me. Despite all my sins - he still loves me."
