Morning Starts with surfing various blog and social media (addicted). We stumbled on this particular Charity photo project done by Jonathan May. He was fascinated by the blind school children playing soccer. Let us hear by his own words !
While the deputy principle was gathering some children to photograph, I noticed this young girl (Teresa) who was blindly fumbling her way from one side of the school yard to the other. I asked the deputy if Teresa could join us and I was told it wasn’t possible. Her family couldn’t afford the school fees and her mother was currently being told by the principle to take her home today. The deputy went on and said that without continued education at her age, Teresa would get left behind and struggle to integrate and engage with society. I thought back to my own childhood and how at Teresa’s age I didn’t have a care in the world. I couldn’t let Teresa go home on that day so I paid for her tuition for the rest of the year. It wasn’t a lot of money and that small gesture will give young Teresa some hope to live a more normal independent life. I now have myself an unexpected sponsor child and will continue to pay for her education.
This project aims to bring awareness to the daily struggles that some children endure, by trying to give you their respective visual impairment. With each photo the viewer ‘sees’, it is ironically as though they become the child in the photo, less able to clearly ‘see’ what lies in front of them. In this way, the series itself becomes a metaphor for deterioration.

These photographs are very emotional and touching. At the same time people like us with good eye sight see wrong things. We should thank ourselves having good eye sight, thanks to God. Kindly share this post or article – don’t be selfish.
