I am raising a fund for my 58 years old mother. My mom is a single mom since my father left us for another family almost 20 years ago. Since then, she made a living as a seamstress and worked day and night just to provide our needs which maybe, was the reason why early as 57, she was diagnosed as having cataract. Being someone who have witnessed all her struggles,I have always dreamed of giving her back all the love and favors. At her age, I want her to enjoy the beauty of life that was deprived from her since she had us to care for, all by herself.
Early this year, she decided to attend an ALTERNATIVE LEARNING SYSTEM Education Program which is a Philippine program (10 months) for those who were not able to finish Elementary and High school level. This is to give chance to those less fortunate people so that when they pass the National Exam to be administered somewhere before the end of the year, they will be given a diploma and can proceed to College. My mom wants it so badly- just the thought of having a High school Diploma enchants here but due to her cataract, She is having hard time in School. Reading glasses is no longer of help to her as the cataract is becoming worse. The doctor said she needs to undergo surgery, in which no matter how we want it, we just don't have the resources.
I hope that through this, I can help my mom see clearly again. Thank you so much.
