Ramon has worked as a farmer for most of his life, but due to his age and deteriorating eyesight, he is finding it very hard to continue working.
Ramon has been diagnosed with complicated cataracts. The clouding of the lenses in his eyes makes it difficult for Ramon to see clearly. Without surgical intervention, Ramon is at risk of going completely blind.
Ramon has been scheduled for surgery on March 4. The total costs of the surgery will come to $1,500. This will also cover specialized medical evaluation by an ophthalmologist (eye specialist), travel to and from the hospital, and pre- and post-operative care. Ramon cannot pay for the surgery alone, so our medical partner, Wuqu’ Kawoq (WK), is asking for donations.
Ramon’s surgery will give him back his independence and freedom so he can continue to work and take care of himself. Ramon shares with WK, “With all of my heart I thank you for your help. May God bless you and your families, always!”
