Beatrice is a grandmother from Kenya. Beatrice the mother of five grown children lives with her husband in Central Kenya. Neither of them works. They depend on the little pension her husband, a retired teacher gets.
Five years ago, Beatrice 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 seeing and often needs help.
Fortunately, Beatrice 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.
“My children do not have stable jobs and are all struggling to make ends meet. I am not sure of how to ask for help from them,” says Beatrice
