Damaris received prescription glasses.

With the aid of Watsi funding, Damaris has received glasses to correct her vision. She no longer experiences problems with her eyesight, and does not struggle with blurry vision. Damaris can now clearly see faraway objects, and no longer suffers from vision-related headaches. We are confident that Damaris will continue using her glasses, and that they will help her in every aspect of her life.

Damaris says, “I feel very grateful with Wuqu’ Kawoq for all that you have brought me for my health, and I hope that you can continue to support more people.”

Meet Damaris, a 20-year-old young woman who lives with her four siblings and parents in Guatemala’s rural highlands.

Damaris has myopia, or nearsightedness, which means that she has difficulty seeing faraway objects. She requires a new pair of prescription glasses to help her see clearly.

On June 12, Damaris will be fitted with a new pair of prescription glasses. Our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq, is asking for $552 in donations to help cover the costs of the glasses.

“My family and I are so grateful for your help. I feel so happy,” says Damaris.
