Meet Estelea, a 54-year-old from Guatemala’s rural highlands. She lives with her husband and their children and grandchildren. Estelea prepares and sells food at her local market to supplement her family’s income.

Estela has struggled with her vision for years but has never been able to visit an eye doctor to get her vision checked. However, a month ago, Estela got the opportunity to attend a free eye clinic to get her eyesight tested. Estela was subsequently diagnosed with myopia, or nearsightedness, a condition where she is unable to see faraway objects.

Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, has arranged for Estela to receive glasses fitted with prescription lenses. Estela will also undergo an eye ultrasound on May 25.

With $552, we can help Estela to see clearly again!

“This is such a great benefit for my family and me,” says Estela.
