Angela is a 58-year-old homemaker from Guatemala. She has three adult children and lives with her daughter and grandchildren. She helps her daughter by taking care of her two young grandchildren.
Angela has struggled with her eyesight for many years now. She has never been able to afford to go to the doctor to get her eyes checked. Recently, Angela got the opportunity to attend a free clinic to get her eyesight tested. At the clinic, the doctors told her that she needs glasses to fix her blurry vision and inability to see faraway objects.
Angela is unable to pay the expensive cost of personalized glasses. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is requesting $552 to fund an eye ultrasound and travel fees and to fit Angela with prescription lens glasses.
These glasses will help Angela see better. She will be able to live and work more easily, and she can continue to take care of her family.
Angela says, “I am happy and wholly grateful for the support that I am receiving. They did some exams for me and I thought that my eyes could never be fixed. But, the doctor indicated that with glasses my vision could get better. This will help me greatly.”
