HOPE IS A GOOD THING, MAYBE THE BEST OF THINGS
Duleshari Devi, a 50-year-old woman from India, is a powerful reminder that courage doesn’t always roar. Years ago, her vision began to diminish. She gradually started having a hard time recognizing her grandchildren. Duleshari remained calm in the face of enveloping darkness. When she could no longer distinguish day from night, she’d listen for the quiet voice whispering, “Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.” No longer could she care for her cows or do a lick of work around the house. She will attest that blindness is not merely debilitating, it’s equally isolating.
Lonely days were spent hoping for a way to once again see the faces of her family members. She refused to give up hope. Her resolve was simply a reflection of her strength. When a CharityVision doctor restored her sight via cataract surgery, she beamed with a perfect brightness of hope. Duleshari said she couldn’t wait to return home and see her grandchildren. She asked us to thank the people who made her surgery possible. So thank you for helping those who cannot help themselves—for giving irresistible hope to those in need.
