San is a 69-year-old man who used to work as a laborer but is no longer able to work. He lives with friends in Tak Province. His friend works as a construction laborer, and his friend’s wife is a homemaker. San’s friends provide food and accommodation for him, as he has no income of his own. In his free time, San enjoys listening to Buddhism Dharma and meditation.
Currently, San cannot see at all with his right eye and can only read with his left eye. Fortunately, our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), can help. On January 4th, doctors will perform a lens replacement, during which they will remove San’s natural lens and replace it with an intraocular lens implant. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly again. BCMF is requesting $1,500 to fund San’s lens replacement surgery.
San shared his hopes for a healthier future: “If I regain my vision, I want to become a monk.”
