“Naisanoi walks into the interview with a smile on her face and as we settle down for the interview, I begin to understand why,” says our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). “She has been praying for her vision to come back since she realized that she was gradually going blind.”
Naisanoi is a 35-year-old woman from Kenya. She has ten children, and helps her husband tend to his cattle. She also makes and sells traditional bead jewelry.
Around the time Naisanoi delivered her fourth child, she began experiencing problems with her vision. She was diagnosed with a cataract in her right eye, but has not received treatment due to a lack of funds.
AMHF recently traveled to Naisanoi’s village to treat Naisanoi and other patients affected by cataracts. A cataract removal for Naisanoi will cost $230, and is expected to fully restore her vision.
“I love making my jewelry and I can no longer make them as fast as I used to,” Naisanoi tells us. “Thank you for answering my prayer and coming to restore my sight.”
