Nan is a 66-year-old rice farmer with two daughters, five sons, and 13 grandchildren. Nan lives with his wife who is a grocery seller and their daughter who is a farmer. These days, Nan can not go to the rice field because of his poor vision. He likes to listen to the news on the radio and watch boxing on TV.
Three years ago, Nan developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him photophobia and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Nan learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for three hours seeking treatment. On August 10th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and place an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
Nan said, “I hope after surgery I can see well again. I want to visit the pagoda, plant vegetables around my house, and help my wife sell groceries.”
