Rachel Mwangi is a 45 year old woman who is very prominent in her hometown church, just two hours north of Mombasa. She unfortunately was in an accident involving sparks flying into her eyes causing pain, irritation, and trouble seeing. She struggled with these problems for 3 years and some people in her church made her believe that God was punishing her through this. After seeking help and being turned away by a local eye clinic, Rachel came out to a nearby Lighthouse Eye Camp who identified the problem and brought her into the main clinic for corrective surgery. Her eyes are now completely healed. Rachel thanks Lighthouse for making her whole again and giving her the opportunity to return to her church community with vision restored. As we reach our 50th year of work at Lighthouse we touch on stories like these to thank our donors, volunteers, and staff for making it all possible.
