Our work Real stories Worku's Story A nurse's work is improved with the provision of a pair of glasses. Name: Worku Country: Ethiopia Occupation: Nurse Meet Worku, a nurse working in the Amhara region of Ethiopia. Worku has worked as a nurse for over 25 years and specialises in midwifery, yet has been struggling with his eye sight for the last 7 years. His poor eye sight made his work extremely difficult, especially stitching wounds and reading essential documents. Thankfully, Worku was seen by one our outreach teams and was given a full eye test. He was then prescribed with a pair of brand-new, affordable glasses to correct his vision. He can now continue to work and treat his patients without difficulty. Now I can see the small letters and read very clearly. This will really help me to do my job. Without clear vision children can’t learn to get an education and adults can’t earn to care for their families and contribute to their communities. However, you can make all the difference today by making a donation.
