Tor is a 58-year-old rice farmer with one daughter, three sons, and five grandchildren. Tor lives with his wife who is also a rice farmer and their youngest daughter who is a garment worker. He likes to listen to the news on the radio.
Two years ago, Tor developed a cataract in his left eye. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, and this affects his ability to do his daily work, such as planting rice.
When Tor learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On May 10th, doctors will perform a small incision cataract surgery, and implant an intra-ocular lens in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $253 procedure.
Tor says, “I hope after surgery my eye can see better so I can go outside and plant rice more easily.”
