When it comes to genetic eye diseases, lightning can strike the same family twice.

Unfortunately, that happened to Deryen, a six- year-old boy who – like his mother, Lorraine – was born with congenital glaucoma.

The disease has left the boy with just a tiny fraction of his vision. But despite his hardships, he’s cheerful, friendly, and eager to learn.

We’d love to help this little boy!

That’s why we’re hoping you’ll click here to make a special donation to the SANCB this Christmas, to offer life-changing assistive devices to families living with blindness.

An electric brailler would be a vital tool for communication and success for Deryen.

There are many other wonderful tools that encourage blind and partially sighted children to develop and thrive: like white canes, puzzles, braille books and talking calculators.

Your donation, made online by clicking here, will put these tools within reach of families who can’t afford them.

Deryen lives in Durban with his parents Lorraine and Rakesh, and younger sister. His dad gave up his job to care for his family, and they struggle to make ends meet.

Yet they’re determined to give Deryen the best start in life. He attended Bright Eyes Pre-school and is now at Open Air School. He can already read braille and loves reading the books his teacher gives him.

Thanks to the generosity of friends like you, we gave Deryen a white cane earlier this year – a vital tool for his mobility training.

Your gift, made by clicking here, will help provide more children with exciting tools like this.

And if you’re inspired by Deryen, perhaps you’d like to double-up your gift, to help more kids like him?

Because, without any assistive devices herself, Lorraine has always walked a difficult road. And we’d love to steer Deryen on a different path . . . a path of progress which will lay a foundation for meaningful life.

So please click here to send your gift of goodwill today, and help more children like Deryen to spread their wings and shine.

Thank you!

Deryen loves music. Here he is with his boom box music player.
