Ra is a 66-year-old mother of two with one son, one daughter, and five grandchildren. Ra lives with her daughter, who is a garment worker. She also enjoys visiting the pagoda to join in the ceremonies.
Two years ago, Ra developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her itchiness, tearing, and blurry vision. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going outside.
When Ra learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for four and a half hours seeking treatment. On January 4th, doctors will perform cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. CSC is requesting $229 to fund this procedure.
Ra shared, “I hope after surgery my eye can see better. I want to walk by myself easily and help to look after my grandchildren.”
