Recently Momoh had been struggling to read the news and take notes when covering stories in the field. His eyesight had been failing and he found himself requiring a great deal more light to read. Spectacles are very hard to acquire in Sierra Leone and it is almost almost impossible to have an eye test and purchase prescription glasses in rural regions of the country.
Fortunately Momoh was asked to broadcast news of a Vision Aid Overseas Eye Care team visiting his remote region of the country. For several days he made announcements on the radio offering a chance for free eye examinations and help with eye conditions. Keen to avail himself of their help Momoh came to Kailahun Government Hospital on their first day to report on their activities and have an eye examination himself.
