Julius is a man from Kenya. A while ago, Julius developed a cataract in his right cataract, causing him blurry vision. A cataract occurs when the lens of the eye becomes opaque, blurring vision. He has difficulty seeing his children.

Fortunately, Julius is scheduled to undergo cataract surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Surgeons will remove and replace the blurred lens. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $220 procedure.

Julius says, “I want to regain my eyesight and continue providing for my wife.”
