Marzia from Afghanistan


We brought precious little Marzia from Afghanistan last December. She was injured in a firefight and lost her right eye from a gunshot wound. While with us and our children at GMRF’s “Dare to Dream House,” she received a beautiful prosthetic eye courtesy of Annette Kirsrot, B.C.O., from Ocular Prosthetics, Inc. Her face lit up when she first looked in the mirror! Marzia also received nasal surgery from our partners-in-effort Mission: Restore to open her airways and aid in her breathing. Marzia is now home; we look forward to having her back for follow-up visits.
