Two Blind Sisters See for the First Time

Oh kind Lord, you have given me two eyers...
why have you kept me blind?

Sonia and Anita, two sisters living in India, have been blind since birth, but a simple eye operation makes it possible for them to see their mom for the first time. The nonprofit organization 20/20/20 provides free operations to these sisters--as well as thousands of other people in developing countries. These procedures empower people in impoverished communities to create better futures.

In this short film, Blue Chalk Media shares the sisters’ poignant story and captures their initial experiences after the bandages come off.
