Na is a 54-year-old homemaker from Thailand. She lives with her husband and her niece in a refugee camp. Her husband is a mechanic and her niece helps her with household chores since her vision worsened. In her free time, she likes to pray and listen to the news. She also enjoys helping her husband repair bicycles and motorcycles.
Na has cataracts. The vision in her right eye is very blurry and she can only perceive light with her left eye. Her niece now has to do most of the household chores since her vision is so poor.
Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund eye surgery for Na. On November 27, doctors will perform a lens replacement, during which they will remove Na’s natural lenses and replace them with an intraocular lens implant. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $1,500 procedure.
“I have no children to take care of me and my husband,” Na said. “Because of this, I want to receive surgery as soon as possible so that I can recover.”

Na underwent eye lens replacement so that she can see clearly again.
Before surgery, Na had blurry vision, redness, tears, and itching from both of her eyes, and her left eye could only perceive light. Since her surgery, she can see clearly with her right eye and better than before from her left eye. She no longer has redness or tears in both of her eyes.
She would like to thank BCMF and all of her donors for their support of her treatment. When she has money, she would like to donate to BCMF herself to help other patients. After she recovers completely, she would like to assist her husband with repairing motorcycles and bicycles. Most importantly, she would like to work on household chores so that her husband can focus on his work and earn more money for their family.
Na said, “I never thought that I would receive surgery for both of my eyes in such a short time, but unexpectedly, I received surgery for both eyes, and I am so happy.”
