Kim is a 52-year-old wife and mother. She and her husband have one daughter and three grandchildren. Kim lives with her husband who works as a farmer and their daughter who works as a garment worker. In her free time, Kim enjoys listening to the news and the monks pray on the radio.
One year ago, Kim developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, sensitivity to light, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Kim learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On October 18th, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Kim shared, “I hope I can see clearly again so I can help my husband in the rice field and help my daughter take care of my grandchildren. I would like to be able to get around easily and do my housework well.”
