Neap is a 75-year-old retired rice farmer, mother, and grandmother. She has two sons, seven daughters, and twenty grandchildren. After her husband passed away, Neap moved in with one of her daughters, who supports them by working as a rice farmer. In her free time, she enjoys listening to the radio and visiting her local pagoda.
About a year ago, Neap developed a cataract in her left eye, causing itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, thus is unable to travel on her own.
When Neap learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled for four hours to seek treatment. On March 7th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and implant an intraocular lens in her left eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Neap said, “After surgery I want to see more clearly so I can take care of my family.”
