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”.
