Hsa is an 18-year-old living with his parents, three brothers and a sister, in Burma. Two of his siblings are still in school, while the remainder of his family work as subsistence farmers. Hsa, however, is currently unemployed, and enjoys playing various sports with his friends.
Hsa has cataracts in both of his eyes, making it difficult for him to see clearly. Thanks to assistance from our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Hsa is scheduled for cataract surgery on October 11th, at Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital. During the surgery, doctors will replace Hsa’s own lenses with intraocular implants, enabling Hsa to live a more independent life. Now, Hsa needs your help to fund this $1,500 procedure.
Hsa said: “I wish to see again so that I can look after myself. Then my family will no longer need to assist me with everything.”

Hsa underwent cataract surgery.
Hsa’s surgery was a success. Before undergoing this procedure, Hsa’s vision was very blurry. He could not see people’s faces and had difficulty navigating his way around, so he had to rely on his family to help him. Now, having undergone surgery, Hsa shared that his future is brighter! He is thrilled to be able to see clearly again and be able to move and go out on his own. He and his family are no longer worried about his future, and Hsa is looking forward to returning to work as a soldier.
He shared: “I am extremely happy that I can look after myself, and my family does not have to look after me anymore. Thank you very much to each of you for helping. Now, I can go wherever I want without my father’s assistance and play cane ball with my friends again. When I had blurry vision, I felt like my life was in darkness, and now I feel light and happy. Thank you very much to all donors and BCMF for helping me to see again.”
