Daw Htar is retired and lives with her daughter. In her free time, Daw Htar like to help clean the house and sew clothes.
Daw Htar has lost most of the vision in her right eye. Sometimes, her eye feels watery or itchy. She has difficulty seeing clearly and recognizing faces. Because the vision in her left eye is also blurry, for the past month she has had to rely on her daughter to guide her when she walks.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF), is helping Daw Htar receive treatment. On December 20th, she will undergo lens replacement surgery, during which they will remove Daw Htar’s natural lenses and replace them with an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help raising $1,500 for her procedure and care.
Daw Htar shared, “I feel so upset that my condition worsens every day. I cannot sleep well, because I am worried about what will happen if I do not get better.”
