Min is a 66-year-old homemaker with one daughter, four sons, and seven grandchildren. She lives with her husband, who is an administrative officer, and with her oldest daughter who works as a food seller. Listening to the news and the monks praying on the radio are some of Min’s favorite things to do.
Three months ago, Min developed a cataract in her right eye, causing blurry vision and photophobia. As a result, she has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside. Her limited vision has prevented her from cooking, as well.
When Min learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled an hour seeking treatment. On September 14th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, Min will be able to see clearly once more. CSC is requesting $229 to fund this procedure.
Min shared, “I hope that after surgery, I can see clearly, I can go outside, and I will recognize my relatives. I also want to help my daughter with her business.”
