While we were in Surigao, we met a baby in Brgy. Zaragoza who have cataract. According to the mother, the baby had cataract since birth. Due to their life situation they can barely support the basic needs; health of the child is not addressed.

We also met a grandmother living alone in her house after her husband died because of famine. Grandmother’s leg is amputated because of diabetes.
