The first thing Saba does when he wakes up is turn on the light and look at his hands. "Today," he says, flashing a charming smile to avoid upsetting both me, the reporter, and his beloved mother, "I was very lucky; I woke up with my sight. Thirty percent - that's how much vision I have in one eye. I can see my hands, which means there isn't a happier boy in the whole world! I wash up and snuggle up to my mom! What a beautiful face she has! And such warm, loving hands!" But now... God is great! We've found a doctor in Turkey who guarantees a corneal transplant for my child and the restoration of most of his vision for $15,000! Can you imagine? Saba will be able to see again! He is such a smart boy! And his smile is incredible! The whole country will love him! And he will be able to repay his country with his service, no matter who he becomes, for he is an extraordinary person!

The first thing Saba does when he wakes up is turn on the light and look at his hands. "Today," he says, flashing a charming smile to avoid upsetting both me, the reporter, and his beloved mother, "I was very lucky; I woke up with my sight. Thirty percent - that's how much vision I have in one eye. I can see my hands, which means there isn't a happier boy in the whole world! I wash up and snuggle up to my mom! What a beautiful face she has!  And such warm, loving hands!"

"Then I eagerly wait for hugs from my brother and sisters!

I feel so sorry for them. Because my mom's last money goes to my treatment.

"But the faces in white coats and their terrifying words immediately come to mind—that it won't last long! If I don't get a cornea transplant, I will become completely blind!" It's so scary!!! Because that means that for the rest of his days, Saba will only see darkness!

Saba (14 years old): "This is roughly how I see the world today when I go outside. Isn't it still beautiful?   I'm only 14, and my vision is gradually fading away. Mom says that according to medical records, he has only 5 % vision in one eye and 30 % in the other, but to put it in simple terms, it means I can't clearly see the faces of my mom and my siblings. "I can't make out their kind smiles, especially my mom's!  And that's the most important thing in the world to me!" 

His mother, with trembling hands, embraces him. Saba feels her warmth and senses how she holds back her tears, and her voice trembles betraying her emotions. And Saba, not wanting to upset his mother more, keeps smiling and joking...

Manana (Saba’s mom): Saba, my dear, we will find a way. We will cetainly figure something out. The Chernovetskyi Fund has come to us, and together we will find a solution!

Saba nods and tries to smile with his charming smile, but I, the correspondent, see that he can hardly believe that. He is afraid of what lies ahead. Afraid of the darkness that has become his constant companion. But even more, he fears for his mother, for not being able to see her and be her support.

Manana: Our family is socially disadvantaged. We've sold everything we could, but continued visiting Georgian doctors, and even had one surgery done! But it only brought my boy more pain - both emotional and physical.

But now... God is great! We've found a doctor in Turkey who guarantees a corneal transplant for my child and the restoration of most of his vision for $15,000! Can you imagine? Saba will be able to see again! He is such a smart boy! And his smile is incredible! The whole country will love him! And he will be able to repay his country with his service, no matter who he becomes, for he is an extraordinary person!

Saba: “I hear my parents discussing this late in the evening, thinking I am already asleep. I hear the desperation in their voices, and it really hurts me!” 

Saba: I remember the days when I could see. I remember running around the yard and going to school.

Barbare (8-year-old): I remember someone promised to buy me a bicycle, but then they couldn’t. 

Anita (5-year-old): And they didn’t buy me one either...

- Manana, besides Saba, you have three other children. Tell us about them.

Manana: Barbare is 8-year-old and Anita is 5. Giorgi is already a grown boy. He dreams of growing up quickly to help the family. We barely make ends meet. "Because of my son's illness the girls are deprived of everything."

– And what do you live on?

Manana: Our family's income is only social allowance. Fortunately, we don’t have to pay rent. The state pays for it it. But we can't raise $15,000 in several lifetimes. My hands are tied. I feel guilty towards my children, especially Saba.

Barbare: And I want to become president and give money to all poor children so they can buy whatever they need. I would give Saba money for his surgery. And I would buy myself a bicycle and a tablet.

- Manana, you can address our readers. Together, all of Georgia can help save Saba's sight.

Manana: I was so embarrassed to write to you!  But you convinced me that the Fund is supported by hundreds of thousands of compassionate people in Georgia!  Still, please forgive me! I have made a decision. I can no longer sit idly by. I must try to do everything possible to save my son. I dared to write you a letter. 

- At our Fund, we know many stories where people lose faith! Thank God you’re not one of them!  God will help you, especially since I’m here! What words would you like to hear most from the doctors in Turkey?

Manana: I’m sorry for my tears, they make it hard to say everything that’s in my heart. It’s just a dream... I keep dreaming more and more often that a gray-haired, kind doctor comes out of the room where my son is, takes off his surgical gloves, wipes the sweat from his forehead, and says: "The surgery was successful. Your son will see the world! It's all behind us now!” God, let me live to see that day!

Before you is the story of a 14-year-old boy named Saba, who, despite his young age, is already facing the terrifying prospect of complete blindness. Every day for him starts with a check: can he see at least something today? Doctors warn that without an urgent corneal transplant, he could lose his sight forever. Imagine what it's like to wake up every morning in fear that today might be the day when the light disappears completely. Saba sees the world through a hazy mist, unable to make out his mother's face, unable to enjoy children's games and the simple joys of life.

Dear friends, let your help become a light for Saba in this dark period of his life. Let's make his world filled with colors again, and his heart with joy and hope.

Remember the words of Jesus: "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God."(Matthew 5:8).

Let's join efforts for a noble goal and help Saba regain his vision!

If you are willing to visit the family and help them in person, here is their address: Tbilisi, Moscow Ave, quarter 5, block 10, apartment 13. 

Every time you can help someone, just do it, and rejoice that God answers someone's prayers through you!

We are sure that all together we will manage to save Saba from imminent death.
