Threatened to death, that's what happened to Mohammed, 22, a man from Somalia. He is one of hundreds of refugees whose fate is hanging in the capital city. When in his home country, Mohammed's father was killed by a militant group and he was threatened with death if he did not enter their group. These militant groups often kill people without any reason. Mohammed and his cousin tried to save themselves to a safer place. He came from a poor family, so to be able to leave his country, he needed to sell his family's home.
Initially, he wanted to go to Australia, but he could not get there because he was cheated on the trip until he finally had no place to live in Indonesia. Since the age of 10, Mohammed has "pimples" in his eyes and has tried to get therapy when in Somalia. However, at that time the medical device to operate his eyes was not avalaible there, besides he was also unable to pay for the operation costs. As a result, until now his visions are impaired. When examined at an eye clinic in Jakarta, he was diagnosed as suffering from a cystic cornea.
Corneal scarring or appearance of scar tissue / tissue replaces damaged corneal tissue. This condition can be caused by various things, ranging from infection to the occurrence of trauma to the eye (collision or stab wounds in the eye). Corneal scarring can cause visual disturbances ranging from blurring to blindness because this scar causes turbidity in the cornea. If left unchecked, the man who have been orphaned for a long time can experience fatal nerve damage. Mohammed was advised to perform surgical procedures following several laboratory tests. Because he does not work and does not have any insurance, Mohammed could not pay the expenses.
