Lat is a 73-year-old potato farmer. She lives with her niece who works as a seamstress. In her free time, Lat enjoys listenings to the monks preaching on the radio.
Two years ago, Lat developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Lat learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, she traveled there with her niece seeking treatment. On January 5th, 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.
Lat said, “I want to be able to see well so I can join ceremonies near my home and go places by myself.”
