My name is Andronica Tshabalala and I am 26 years old.
At the age four I was involved in a fire explosion that took place in my granny’s house in Daveyton. I was seriously injured in my eye, and ever since that day I have lost my vision in my right eye. My life has been so difficult since then, living with a blind eye – it has not been easy.
When I went to public hospital seeking for help, they recommended an optometrist. Unfortunately I could not go due to financial constraints.
I use eye drops daily to reduce the pain, but sometimes the eye drops do not help at all. Despite this I thank God that I am still alive.
If it was not for I Can!, I don’t know where I would be. I am very blessed that I Can! came into my life and made me feel important, loved and appreciated.
I am very honoured to work at CIMSSA. I am now a permanent employee, working as a Receptionist. Management is treating me well and empowering me by sending me to trainings and paying for my studies.
All I can say is that I was blessed to be introduced to I Can!, they have done their best to help people living with disabilities.
