Team is a 60-year-old housekeeper who lives with her eldest daughter who is a garment worker. She has one son, two daughters, and three grandchildren. Her husband passed away from malaria in 1979. She shared that in her free time, she enjoys watching educational programs on TV.
Five years ago, Team developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurred vision, sensitivity to light, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going places outside on her own.
When Team learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled there with her daughter seeking treatment. On March 23rd, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Team shared, “I hope after surgery I can see better so I can recognize my family, return to work, and help my daughter cook at home.”
