Dassoussa (Photo by John Carroll, February 2012)
Dassoussa is a two and one-half year old toddler who lives with his mom in Soleil.

He developed cataracts and can only see light.

Dassoussa was severely malnourished but entered a program for malnourished kids in Soleil and did well.

He likes to play like any other boy of this age.

We have a pediatric ophthalmologist who has accepted Dassoussa for surgery in the States but are having a hard time getting his Haitian passport.
