Khoke is a 28 years old woman. She now lives in Chamisko camp with his husband and two kids.
They live in a small tend but they created a nice shadowed yard in the middle where they can also spend their time.
Her husband has been working repairing a highway for the past two months but he doesn’t know for how long more he will be able to work. IDPs in the camp are often in this precarious working condition in which they may work for few months and then are let down for unknown periods of time.
Yet, because of this little money they currently are able to save, Khoke is considering getting a eye surgery long needed. She has a form of Hyperometropia which gives her headache and impairs her daily life. However, this operation costs 1500 $ and the family is still quite far from reaching the budget necessary.
Khoke eye condition is preventing her from living a healthy life and finding the strenght to fight the rough conditions she is finding herself in. By now Khoke has been saving for years to treat this disabling condition so we decided to help her to realize her goal and improve her quality of life!
Khoke underwent the operation last month thanks to the donation of the French Association for the Aid of Youths with Disabilites and People with Hadicaps (Association pour l’Aide aux Jeunes Infirmes et aux Personnes handicapées). She is finally healthy enough to face her challenging future with energy and positivity!
Thank you all for following her story!
