Tabitha is a farmer from Kenya. She is a mother of four and lives in her ancestral land with her husband.

About a year ago, Tabitha developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision. A cataract occurs when the lens of the eye becomes opaque, blurring vision. She has difficulty tilling her farm.

Fortunately, Tabitha 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.

Tabitha says, “I wish that soon my blurry vision will be corrected. I want to be able to see clearly as before.”
