Nawadia underwent cataract surgery.

Nawadai was successfully treated in our medical partner’s facility. She had the right eye cataract removed and is able to see with better clarity. The surgery eliminated her risk of becoming blind.

Nawadia says, “Thank you for the assistance given to me. I will be able to do most of the work on my own now.”

Nawadia is a 79-year-old woman from central Kenya. She is the mother of six children and is a farmer on her one-acre piece of land. However, she is currently unable to farm due to her poor vision.

Nawadia’s vision problems started about one year ago, when she was diagnosed with a cataract in her right eye and told to wait for the cataract to mature. Now, she needs cataract surgery that she cannot afford. If untreated, Nawadia may become permanently blind.

On March 30, Nawadia will have the cataract in her right eye surgically removed at our medical partner’s care center in Kenya, AIC Kijabe Hospital. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $220 for Nawadia’s treatment. This will pay for her surgery, medications, eye drops, and one night in the hospital.

Nawadia looks forward to regaining her independence after the cataract surgery and says, “I want to cook for myself and do things on my own. I don’t want to keep disrupting my children on simple things.”
