Miracles at Every Turn

Moise Ahoussimou, a poor West African boy with an intellectual disability and next to no vision, is one example of a Healthy Athletes success story. While volunteering at Healthy Athletes, a doctor realized Moise had been blinded by cataracts. He was referred for a simple operation, and Moise left his appointment with restored sight. He saw his father for the first time. “I can see." He grabbed his father’s hand. “Hey! Dad, I didn’t know you are that tall!”
