Selam lives in Ethiopia and is the only family her granddaughter has left. Sadly Selam has cataracts, she’s going blind. This makes it hard for her to do everyday tasks and look after her granddaughter.

A cataract operation could save Selam’s sight. It’s a straightforward and inexpensive procedure – but Selam simply cannot afford it. Selam doesn’t know how her granddaughter would survive without her. 

“She’s the only one I have so I really take care of her”.
