YouTube star Yousef Erakat AKA FouseyTube is leading an online campaign to raise funds for fighting cataracts in Wajir.
Yesterday, the American-Palestinian was photographed peeling off bandage from a man’s eye who had just regained his sight after surgery. The surgery had cost Ksh100,000, paid for by Fousey.
Yousef, who, according to comparilist.com is worth $4 million (Ksh446m) produces parodies, vlogs, comedy sketches and pranks on YouTube.
In the Wajir video, Fousey says an Islamic prayer for the man, before breaking down in tears. The man had reportedly been blinded by cataracts for many years.
Cataracts make the lense of the eye opaque, leading to blindness.
“I complain about such small stuff when I am back home, and I like, worry about things that don’t matter. Over here, all someone needs is to get something out of his eye, and it was done for $100 (Ksh11,000),” he says.
