Why I shed tears at Bethesda Home for the Blind – Kate Henshaw
Multiple-award winning Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw has recounted an incident that brought tears to her eyes at a popular home for visually-impaired people.
Henshaw disclosed that she had an encounter with one of the pupils at the Bethesda Home For The Blind in Agege, Lagos which reminded her of how ungrateful she had been to God.
Narrating the incident, the actress said, “So many of us don’t know the value of what we have.
“I sat back and reflected on our visit to Bethesda Home for the blind and I concluded that I have been very ungrateful. While there I was privileged to speak to one of the students who confessed to me that he was born blind…he made a statement that brought tears to my eyes, he said he wished he could see who he is talking to him. I couldn’t hold back the tears.
“He doesn’t know what his mother, father and siblings look like and wished God could just give him back his sight. I left feeling ungrateful for constantly complaining of the things He hasn’t done for me and not thanking Him enough.”
Bethesda is an NGO set up to provide succour to visually-Impaired persons.
