Kea is a nun from Cambodia. She is married. She has three sons, four daughters, and 41 grandchildren. She likes to watch TV and listen to monks pray on the radio.
A year ago, Kea developed a cataract in each eye, causing her blurred vision and photophobia. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Kea learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On May 1, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification surgery and an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $398 procedure.
She says, “I hope I can see clearly again so I easily learn more about Buddha and help monks at the pagoda.”
