Kech is a 68-year-old grandmother who is married with two daughters, five sons, and eighteen grandchildren. In her free time, Kech enjoys spending time with her family and listening to the monks pray on the radio and visiting the pagoda.
One year ago, Kech developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her photophobia, tearing, and blurry vision. As a result, she has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so she cannot go places on her own.
When Kech learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for three and a half hours seeking treatment. On May 4th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to fund her procedure.
Kech shared, “I hope after surgery that my eye can see better. I would like to recognize things better again and be able to go outside on my own.”
