Sister Awa and Arame had trachoma surgery in Senegal on the same afternoon. Left untreated trachoma can scar your eyelids and turn your eyelashes inwards. Gradually, painfully, you go blind. Awa wore a pair of tweezers around her neck and plucked her eyelashes out. Thanks to surgery, the sisters are no longer in pain. Together, we can end trachoma for good.
