Jenny joined Watsi on April 8th, 2019. 15 other people also joined Watsi on that day! Jenny's most recent donation supported Duk, a man from Cambodia, to fund cataract surgery.
Jenny has funded healthcare for 2 patients in 2 countries.
Duk is a 71-year-old rice farmer from Cambodia. He has fifteen grandchildren and enjoys watching boxing and listening to the radio in his free time. Three years ago, Duk developed a cataract in each eye, causing him cloudy vision, blurred vision, and photophobia. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside. When Duk learned about our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, he traveled for two and a half hours seeking treatment. On March 6, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $398 procedure. He says, "I hope that after my surgery, I am able to go back to rice farming and my other daily activities."
Dorica is a mother of two from Malawi. She lives with her children, two grandchildren, and her husband. She does a lot of cooking at home and likes to rest in her free time. Since December 2018, Dorica has been experiencing prolonged bleeding. She has been diagnosed with unspecified abnormal vaginal bleeding. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Our medical partner, World Altering Medicine, is requesting $650 to fund Dorica's surgery. On March 28, she will undergo gynecological surgery at Nkhoma Hospital, our medical partner's care center. The requested money pays for supplies, medications, and seven nights of hospital stay. She looks forward to getting better after this surgery and hopes to start a business of selling doughnuts when she recovers.
