Savat is a 51-year-old rice farmer. She has one son, one daughter, and three grandchildren. Savat lives with her husband who is also a rice farmer. In her free time, Savat enjoys spending time playing with her grandchildren.
Two years ago, Savat developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her photophobia and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Savat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for two and a half hours with her son seeking treatment. On June 21st, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and place 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.
Savat shared, “I hope after surgery my eye feels comfortable again so I can see clearly and go back to planting rice and taking good care of my family.”
