In many parts of the world, grandparents play a vital role in the family by caring for children so their parents can earn an income. When a grandparent loses their sight, it affects the whole family, and their children often have to give up their jobs to care for them.

Menuka – talks about life before her first cataract surgery

 “It was very difficult for me. I could not even see their faces clearly. It looked like they are
wearing some kind of mask instead of their face. And I could not even identify the number of
people like on the road, walking on the road. Now I had an operation in July on my right side,
and now the vision is clear on the right side because of the operation.”- She says

Menuka, a 60-year-old grandmother from Nepal, could hardly see, with mature cataracts in both eyes. Menuka says her life changed when she had her first cataract surgery – and when we met her, she was looking forward to having her second cataract removed. This was all possible from the support of YOU, our listeners with our partnership with CBM Australia.
