This Blind Young Lady Needs Our Help

Most of us are lucky...we have eyes that let us see. But what if we couldn't see? What if the world was all just vague shades of light and dark? Making sense of it and trying to get educated to be a productive member of society would be extremely difficult…and that’s just what life is like for Aadila Skotnicky.

Aadila (Aadi) lives in South Africa. She was born with an eye disease that left her almost blind. She can only sense light and dark with no clarity of objects. But she loves helping people, and despite her disability, she's been studying and learning as much as she can, striving to make a career for herself as a professional caregiver in the healing arts.

Fortunately, there's new technology that can help Aadi. An “Orcam My Eye" will read text into an earpiece for her and much more – what a huge difference that will make in her life and education! But it costs $4,250 (and we still have to ship it to Sough Africa), and that's much more than Aadi and her family of very modest means can afford.

Between Aadi’s savings, generous donations from friends and family, and my contributions, we've raised $1,200. Now we need your help to raise the remaining $3,050.

Please give generously - this young South African lady will deeply appreciate it. You will make a big difference in her life and education that will allow her to make a big difference in the lives of all those she wants to to be a caregiver for.
