Chan Soy is a 65-year-old widow with one daughter and three grandchildren. Chan Soy lives with her daughter, and she enjoys listening to the monks praying on the radio and at the local pagoda.
About one year ago, Chan Soy developed a cataract in her left eye, causing her blurry vision and tearing. As a result, she has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she cannot go out on her own.
When Chan Soy learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled there seeking treatment. On April 4th, surgeons will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $229 to help fund this procedure.
Chan Soy says, “After surgery, I hope my eye can see clearly so I can take better care of my grandchildren and myself.”
