From a distance, you can't tell that Ahmed Oudah is actually blind in both eyes and needs assistance to move around.
He wasn’t born that way; rather, his eyesight was taken from him when an IED detonated outside of a court building in Baghdad, shattering both his vision and his sense of security. Since that day, Oudah has worked tirelessly to provide a safe and happy future for his family. He finally found that security by applying as a refugee and immigrating to Henrico County.
