Just fifteen minutes changed the lives of Sonia and Anita forever.
Sonia, 12, and Anita, 6, were born into blindness in rural India where they live. They had no opportunity to overcome their circumstances. Even school was impossible. Instead, they could only work as beggars.
The nonprofit organization 20/20/20 gave each girl a brief but powerful surgery at the cost of $300 in donations. Now Sonia and Anita can head to school and leave the life of begging behind.
Watch as they see the world for the first time. It’s nothing short of incredible.
