Meet Bauwa – the George Clooney of Nepal, According to Sam & Duncan

By Clare BruceThursday 15 Aug 2019Hope Breakfast with Sam & Duncan

We want you to meet Bauwa. He’s the gentleman who Sam and Duncan have nicknamed “the George Clooney of Nepal”, on account of his salt-and-pepper hair.

Bauwa’s future became very uncertain, when a cataract started to develop in his eye, making it increasingly hard for him to see. And unlike George Clooney, he’s one of the millions of people in the world who survive on just enough income to live day to day.

Hope 103.2’s breakfast team Sam and Duncan and their producer Ally spent time with Bauwa this week as he prepared for his operation, and again after he had his eye patches taken off.

Bauwa’s gratitude was tangible. Many times he expressed his thanks to everyone who has made the gift of sight possible for him.

Bauwa thankyou

Thankyou, Hopeland, for Making Miracles Happen!
