Chon is a 55-year-old farmer with three sons and four grandchildren. She lives and works seasonally with her husband and her youngest son. When not working, Chon likes to travel to religious ceremonies, cook, and watch dramas on TV.
Three years ago, Chon developed a cataract in her right eye, causing her blurry vision, itchiness, sensitivity to light, and tearing. She has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside.
When Chon learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), she traveled for two hours seeking treatment. On July 20th, doctors will perform a cataract surgery and lens implant in her right eye. After recovery, Chon will be able to see clearly. Now, CSC is requesting $229 to help fund this procedure.
Chon cheerfully shares, “I hope that after my surgery I will see everything clearly, so that it is easier for me to work and take care of my family. I also want to be more independent.”
