Mariana is an elderly woman from Kenya. She sometimes does farm work, but she does not make enough to support herself and depends on help from others.

Early this year, Mariana developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. A cataract occurs when the lens of the eye becomes opaque, blurring vision.

Fortunately, Mariana is scheduled to undergo cataract surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Surgeons will remove and replace the blurred lens. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $220 procedure.
