Meet Alfonso

Alfonso was brought by his son Alejandro to a ChOSEN project in Montemorelos to seek help for his profound vision loss in both eyes. For over 5 months, Alfonso had been unable to work and support himself due to his poor vision from cataracts in both eyes.  Alfonso’s cataracts were so advanced that he was unable to navigate across a room on his own accord and had to move in with Alejandro to assist him with basic daily activities such as eating and going to the toilet. Neither Alfonso nor his family had the money to pay for medical care. After receiving cataract surgery free-of-charge on both eyes during the very same day of a ChOSEN project, his vision was completely restored. When asked how he felt about his “new” eyes, Alfonso exclaimed (translated from Spanish to English), “I feel very happy and joyful for how I have been helped and the vision that I have been given back in both eyes.  Thanks to God in Heaven! I feel very grateful.”   Alfonso was able to work again to support himself and live independently.
