  • A grandmother in Zambia spent several years living with matured cataracts, rendering her almost completely blind. Without surgery, she faced the possibility of permanent blindness, unable to see her grandchildren again. However, you gave her hope by supporting our programs & our volunteers, & now she can see once again. Let us continue to help grandparents & all blind people alike see their family again.
