about Khan's recovery.

August 2, 2021

Khan is a 74-year-old food seller, though her age and health is preventing her from working more. She had one son who passed away five years ago and three grandchildren. She currently lives with her husband and daughter-in-law, who is a garment worker. Khan’s favorite pastime is listening to monks pray on the radio.

Three years ago, Khan developed entropion of the eyelids. This means that her eyelids turn inward, causing her eyelashes to scrape the surface of her eyes. It is difficult for her to open her eyelids and see.

Khan traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On August 2nd, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a corrective procedure to repair her eyelids. Now, CSC is requesting $225 to fund this procedure.

Smiling, she shared, “I hope after surgery my eye stops tearing and itching, I can go outside, recognize my family and friends, do housework and take care of my grandchildren. I want to help my niece to collect chew seeds at the farm field.”
