Farana and Busra
Treated at Ages 10 and 8, Uttar Pradesh
Farana and Busra are two sisters who were found through an outreach camp organized by Project Prakash. Profoundly blind and clinging to their father before treatment, they now are much more confident, can walk around the hospital on their own, and are not afraid to share their beautiful smiles. Their father now talks of their future marriage prospects - something quite unthinkable a few years ago.
