VGDH18 Kudiwanashe blk


My name is Kudi and I made this box with mum and dad. Everyday, I have to patch my right eye for a few hours so the vision in my left eye can be corrected. I don’t particularly like doing it and it is sometimes very hard to keep it on. When I patch, I like to sit with mum and dad in my room and read books. Today, we sat in my room and made this box instead. We made it using all the used eye patches mum has been collecting. We talked about child refugees that may have vision problems like me. Mum explained to me about how difficult it is for refugees to access eye care and how they don’t have the resources to prevent blindness. We said how brave and strong they are. So we named this box you are brave, you are visible, you are not alone”.
