about Merida's recovery.

June 12, 2017

28-year-old Merida lives with her parents and eight-year-old son in Guatemala’s rural highlands.

After a recent visit to a free clinic, Merida was diagnosed with myopia, or nearsightedness. This means that Merida struggles to see objects that are far away.

Through our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, Merida is scheduled to have an eye evaluation and get fitted for prescription lenses on June 12. She is asking for $552 to cover the total cost of her treatment.
