“In the hills, she could easily fall down, and there can’t always be someone to catch or guide her,” said Chamsuri’s son Chandra with worry.

Well into her seventies, Chamsuri, a vital and active grandmother in rural Nepal has never slowed down. At the heart of a large, bustling family, she tended the animals, worked the fields, cooked meals, and helped care for her grandchildren.

Until one day, she began to lose her vision. Life became much harder. Before, her family had depended on her, now she depended on them.

As the darkness closed in, things that had always given her purpose slowly slipped out of reach. This once vital, independent matriarch suddenly felt helpless and hopeless.

Chandra knew he had to act. “My heart couldn’t see this!” But because they lived in poverty, in a remote area of a low-income country, access to eye care was beyond their reach.

Then, a glimpse of hope. Over the radio, Chandra heard about free eye care services at the Bharatpur Eye Hospital in a nearby district. At the Eye Hospital, Chamsuri was diagnosed with bilateral cataracts.

Chamsuri received sight-restoring cataract surgery, free of charge thanks to Seva donors. Chamsuri was overwhelmed with joy when her bandage was removed.

Everything’s changed! Everything is good now! I’m happy now that I can do things on my own. There’s nothing as important as sight!

- Chamsuri

All donations up to $2,500 made by December 31st will be matched up to a maximum of $100,000 by a generous donor.

As Chamsuri’s vision faded, so did her independence and joy for life
