Tai is an elderly grandfather with two sons, two daughters, and fourteen grandchildren. All of Tai’s children work as farmers. In his free time, Tai shared that he likes to listen to the monks pray on the radio.
Four years ago, Tai developed a cataract in his right eye, causing him tearing and blurry vision. As a result, he has difficulty seeing things clearly, including colors and faces, and is worried about falling when walking, so he cannot go places on his own.
When Tai learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled there hoping treatment to help him see again. On June 14th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his right eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $253 to fund this procedure.
Tai says, “I hope my vision improves so I can get around easily on my own and take care of myself.”
