February 16, 2021

Kak is a 68-year-old mother of six. She is a rice farmer who lives with her husband and together they have a daughter, five sons, and many grandchildren. Kak no longer works in the rice field because of her age and her vision. She likes to spend her time listening to the monks preaching on the radio, and caring for her grandchildren.

About two years ago, Kak developed glaucoma in her left eye. Glaucoma refers to damage to the eye’s optic nerve, or the nerve connecting the eye to the brain. This causes her blurred vision, headache, inability to recognize faces and photophobia. It is difficult for her to look straight ahead, and hard to walk

Kak traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 17th, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), will perform a glaucoma procedure to improve her vision. Now, Kak needs help to raise $277 to fund this procedure.

She told us, “I hope after surgery I can see well again, see my family better, and go outside without problems.”
