Teresiah is a 71-year-old grandmother from Kenya. She is mother to five children. She loves listening to Kamba music, a type of music sung in her native language.
Teresa worked as a farmer until about three years ago, when she started experiencing difficulty seeing. Over the years, she has visited various hospitals in search of treatment for her condition but has been unsuccessful. Finally, through a friend’s referral, she learned of our medical partner’s care center, AIC Kijabe Hospital.
On March 17, Teresa will undergo surgery to correct a cataract in her right eye. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is asking for $220 to cover the cost of her treatment.
After surgery, Teresa is looking forward to playing with her grandchildren!
