Lucy, an elderly lady from central Kenya, has been diagnosed with a right eye cataract. Two years ago, she had a left eye cataract surgery funded by Watsi. Recently, she had the right eye cataract matured and after review, surgery was recommended. Lucy, a very lively lady used to work in Kijabe Hospital over 3 decades ago until she retired. Currently, she gets support from her children to meet her daily needs. Her children are, however, not in formal employment and so meeting health cost for her is hard for them. They have families to provide for as well. After the treatment, Lucy will be able to see with better clarity and reduced chances of further vision loss.

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

“I will appreciate financial help accorded towards my surgery,” says Lucy.
