Today, John Bul Dau is a compelling motivational speaker whose life is defined by his uncompromising commitment to the future of his native country, as evidenced in an inspirational holiday update he sent to our offices today:
"WOW! I cannot begin to say how happy I have been for the last three days!
We have world-renowned eye surgeons plus four other doctors who've flown in to our dirt airstrip near Duk Lost Boys Clinic in Duk County in a Cessna Caravan plane. These selfless doctors have been performing at least 178 eye surgeries as of today to restore sight.
Watching these patients celebrate after the 'Miracle' doctors take the patches from their eyes and they can see after being blind is awesome!
I have watched many, many of these patients jumping up in celebration, singing their songs, seeing their loved ones again after long time of blindness, and embracing the doctors ."
