Maly is a 54-year-old mother of three. Maly works as a rice farmer. She has one daughter, two sons, and seven beautiful grandchildren. Maly's husband passed away several years ago, so she lives alone. Maly's children work as farmers and help to support her living. Maly likes to spend her time watching movies, listening to the news, and playing with her grandchildren.
One year ago, Maly developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her photophobia, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so is not able to go places on her own.
When Maly learned about our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On September 6th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery, and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, CSC is helping Maly raise $253 to fund this procedure.
Maly shared, "I hope after surgery my vision can improve so I can help my children more and take care of my grandchildren."
