Bengrong is a 55-year-old rice farmer. She has two sons, one daughter, and five grandchildren. Bengrong likes to go to the pagoda to listen to monks pray and join ceremonies. She also likes to read books.
One year ago, Bengrong developed a cataract in each eye, which has resulted in blurred vision and tearing. It is difficult for Bengrong to work or go anywhere by herself, and she is worried about going blind one day.
Bengrong traveled for three hours with her son-in-law to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment. After a cataract surgery and lens implant in each eye, Bengrong will be able to see clearly again.
Bengrong says, “I hope to see more clearly than now, so that I can work, cook, and read easily.”
CSC is requesting $292 to fund the cataract procedure.
