Stop Trachoma before it starts

'I was scared ... I feared that I had Trachoma'

Badecha is a widow.

Badecha is from one of the poorest villages in all of Ethiopia.She owns only a tiny plot of land, and can barely feed her three children.

For almost a year her eyes had seared with pain. Each day the pain got worse, and her sight weaker. Badecha struggled to do what her family needed to survive.

Finally, in agony, Badecha tore out her eyelashes. Imagine how excruciating the pain would need to be for you to resort to tearing out your eyelashes.
