A Loving healing experience
I wish to express my thanks and gratitude to everyone responsible for giving my brother Colin the opportunity to visit Cuba, on the Mission miracle to have his only eye looked after.
This eye was injured whilst a soldier in the GDF (Perai Battalion) in 1984.He was on a Pepperpot training mission at the time.
He lost his other eye to Glaucoma a disease that took the sights of several persons of my family.
My brother can now see better in the affected eye after the intervention, but has to continue with eye drops for the Glaucoma for the rest of his life.
Thanks to the gifted Cuban doctors, the nurses and other staff who looked after us all and made us feel welcome. It was a wonderful, loving and healing experience.
It was so good to see them embrace and greet one another and work in unity.
We, lived as one big loving Guyanese family for the past 21 days, visiting and enquiring about each other.
It was sad to return leaving a few of our friends behind, but they had to continue their treatment. They too will be home soon with improved vision.
