Ret is a 66-year-old grandmother who is married and has two sons, five daughters, and 11 grandchildren. Ret lives with her husband, who is a religious leader.
Four years ago, Ret developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her sensitivity to light and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Ret learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled there with her husband seeking treatment. On June 4th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Ret shared, “I hope I can see well again so I can go outside on my own, see my family better to take care of my grandchildren, and help my daughter with cooking.”
