San is a proud mother of four with two sons, two daughters, and five grandchildren. San lives with her youngest daughter who is a cleaner at a restaurant. San used to sell bread in front of her house but nowadays she stays inside due to her poor vision. She enjoys listening to music and news on the radio.
Five years ago, San developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, photophobia, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When San learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled there hoping for treatment. On July 15th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $229 procedure.
San said, “I hope I can see clearly again after surgery. I want to take care of my grandchildren well and return to selling bread in front of my house.”
