Jesus is a young boy in Honduras who loves his dad. He gets excited when he comes home from work. But when Jesus turned two, his dad began to notice his son struggled to see. Later, he would be diagnosed with congenital cataracts. He struggled when he tried to walk and often fell. Jesus also struggled to focus his eyes on anything.
Jonathan, his father, took Jesus to see an eye specialist. The doctors diagnosis confirmed he had congenital cataracts in both eyes. The doctor urged them to schedule surgery immediately to prevent permanent vision loss. But Jonathan’s limited income as a taxi driver during the pandemic meant they did not have enough money for the surgery.
But a staff member at Jesus’ clinic mentioned Operation Blessing’s life-changing surgeries. They told him a donor wanted to help Jesus get surgery for the congenital cataracts in his eyes. The surgery was arranged. His parents were overjoyed! The surgery removed his cataracts and Jesus’ sight was restored!
