Laila Attia Suleiman, 74, lives in Sakina, Alexandria Governorate. Laila's vision was severely impaired, making it difficult for her to move around and perform daily tasks, and she frequently asked for a helping hand from her children. As a result, she decided to take part in the Primary Health Care Program's combatting blindness campaign, which was announced by the field workers in Sakina. She had a medical examination, and it was discovered that there was water that had been fossilized in her eye for six years, and she needed to have an operation before it turned blue. Field workers assisted her and drove her to the hospital where the operation was performed. "I can see the light of the world," "I was the first person imprisoned." she said after recovering. Following the operation, she was able to complete her education by attending literacy classes and passing the exams. She could easily read and write with ease and go about her daily activities without assistance such as walk down the street by herself.
