This dignified #Ovambo elder was photographed on the Namibian/Angolan border. He had travelled a long distance from his village in Southern Angola, hearing of a "miracle" doctor who could restore his sight. Three days later and after 6 years in the dark, he did indeed see again, thanks to Dr Helena Ndume and her mission to eradicate blindness. “Now I will see my children and look again at my wife, I am no longer useless.” he said after surgery.
