|Fredrick is a boy with albinism. He is seven-years old and has a mother named Aidah, who is very poor and cannot supply Frederick's needs. His father is dead.

We ordered the glasses and in a few days picked them up and delivered them to Fredrick.
Fredrick is thrilled to have his eyesight much improved, and so is his mother, Aidah, and his brother, Emmanuel. His mother, Aidah said, "Before, Fredrick could only focus after noding or bending his head to either side, but now he remains straight and can see." When we brought Fredrick the glasses, we found him at the home and we surprised him. After receiving the glasses, he said, "Anthony, I can see even things afar." This reminded me of the blind man who was healed by Jesus. This was a much joyful event. Fredrick will be experiencing a new life, now that he is seeing everything around him, even the letters on the blackboard at school.
