Please Don’t Rush
At a school for blind in Laos, children who cannot see are raised away from their families.
For many, their parents have abandoned them, as the difficulty of raising a blind child in impoverished Laos is too much to bear.
Amazingly however, their failing sight if often treatable. Sometimes a simple pair of prescription glasses is all it takes to find the cure.
Please Don’t Rush is a touching and powerful short film. It reveals how a little bit of time, care and compassion can change a person’s destiny for the rest of their life.
