Help Grandmom See Again And Return to Her Country

A dream vacation turns out to be her worst nightmare.  She’s a retired grandmother who comes from a small town in Vietnam where she plans to continue living her life but now finds herself stranded in the US at the worse time possible. She's never been out of her country before and finally gets the opportunity to visit the US for 3 months. Unfortunately her timing couldn't be any worse because right after she arrived back in January the pandemic hits and now she can't return home because the airline has canceled her flight and her country has closed off its borders. Now 8 months later she's still here and has not been able to go anywhere or do much of anything. She's so stressed that it has cause her a stroke which has led to losing her vision. She's lost complete vision from one eye and the other one soon to follow. You can probably see what she might be going through with this sudden lost of sight in an unfamiliar country. I'm a family member who helped her get here but unfortunately I had lost my job due to the pandemic and not financially able to help her now. The cost of her eye surgery is roughly $10k. If she ever gets the change to go back home she'll be in desperate need to get her vision back because she’ll be travelling alone. It's a 24 hour flight with several stops. She and I will both be very blessed if we can raise enough money to get this surgery and get her back home... God Bless everyone and all those who help.
