Leonard Paul Coker
Eleven year old Leonard Paul Coker was another child whose plight was brought to the attention of Pikin Bizness.
He was suffering from a high refractive error which results in extremely painful eyeballs and headaches. Through a passionate letter written by his mother, Pikin Bizness thought it fit to help in his case by providing air tickets for him and his mother to travel to Berlin, Germany to enable him to keep an appointment with an ophthalmologist to change his lens.
Leonard has now undergone the necessary treatment and his vision was saved to the delight of his desperate parents. He now has a new pair of glasses and is coping well in school.
However, Leonard will have to repeat his treatment for another three (3) years until he reaches the age of fifteen (15) when a laser intervention will be feasible.
